New Hampshire Adds Legislation to Protect Elderly 150 150 Rex Securities Law

In January 2015, House Bill 1555, sponsored by Mark Connolly in partnership with the Merrimack County Coordinated Response Team, goes into effect providing new protections for elderly citizens of New Hampshire.

Some of the highlights of the bill:

  • it is a crime for fiduciaries who, for their own profit or advantage, deprive or take real or personal property of an elderly, disabled or impaired adult for the benefit of someone other than the adult.
  • there are criminal penalties for  offenders who know or reasonably should have known that the victim is an elderly, disabled or impaired adult.
  • there is broadened  protection against financial exploitation beyond “incapacitated” adults.

Rex Securities Law provides nationwide representation to investors seeking recovery of investment losses due to the negligence or fraud of stockbrokers and broker dealers. If you have questions about how your account has been handled, call to speak with an experienced securities attorney. Most cases handled on a contingent fee basis meaning that you do not pay legal fees unless we are successful.
