I believe my stockbroker committed fraud. Can I bring a claim in Pennsylvania?

A: The answer depends on several factors, such as where the transactions occurred and whether the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and/or the Pennsylvania Securities Act applies.

So long as some part of the transaction(s) occurred in Pennsylvania, or the stockbroker is located in Pennsylvania, you would likely be able to bring a claim under Pennsylvania state law. In addition, the statute of limitations may be an issue, depending on when the alleged fraudulent actions took place and when you had knowledge of them. For more information, read about the Pennsylvania Securities Act and the statute of limitations for civil matters.
