Answer: Purple beautyberry or Callicarpa dichotoma is a deciduous plant, so part of what you are seeing may be its normal fall coloring and leaf drop. The plant also tends to sprawl a bit and can look untidy. However, I would be concerned about branches collapsing. If the branch is damaged you could cut it off. (And in spring, you will need to cut it back to remove any winter damage, possibly even removing most of the branches.) You might also want to consult with the nursery as to what is happening since it is a newly purchased plant.
