Frequently Asked Questions

At Lewins Law, Richard A. Lewins has been asked many of the same questions from different clients. As a Securities lawyer, Richard is here to help you navigate the often complicated world of investment law. To better help you, he has provided replies to many of these commonly asked questions.

Question: How do I know if I have a good case?
Answer: First and foremost, you need to have suffered losses. When determining losses, you must account for the money you have withdrawn from the account, and exclude those from your calculations. Only in rare circumstances will a broker or firm be held accountable for the money you took out or spent.

Next, you need to distinguish bad luck from bad acts. Brokers are not foretellers of the future with regard to how the markets will perform, nor will they be held to that standard by a trier of fact.
