According to a recent regulatory agreement with FINRA, between December 2017 and May 2021, Robinhood failed to exercise due diligence before approving customers to trade options accounts. Robinhood is also said to have inflicted "widespread and significant harm" to millions of customers by providing them with false information about the risks associated with certain options transactions. As part of the agreement, Robinhood agreed to pay a record-setting penalty of approximately $70 million for systemic supervisory failures.
Iorio Altamirano LLP also currently represents Robinhood traders in filing securities arbitration claims against the firm for placing trading restrictions on certain securities in January 2021.
On January 28, 2021, Robinhood restricted its customers from purchasing shares of publicly traded companies, including GameStop, AMC, Nokia, BlackBerry, Bed Bath & Beyond, Naked Brands, Koss, and Express. After Robinhood announced the trading restrictions, the share prices of many of these companies plummeted.
Former and current Robinhood customers who held the targeted securities on January 27, 2021, are encouraged to complete the following form for a free and confidential consultation. Customers may be entitled to compensation without paying any out-of-pocket fees or costs through a contingency fee arrangement with securities arbitration law firm Iorio Altamirano LLP.
