Compliance Protection for Top-Tier Investment Advisers

 Eccleston Law LLC is pleased to announce new compliance protection services for investment advisers with top-tier advisory practices who require more than cookie-cutter compliance programs, and who have the most to lose when something goes wrong or slips through the cracks!

High net worth advisers have more to lose, and thus more to protect. Only an attorney can render services with the full protection of the “attorney client privilege”, allowing us to candidly discuss the unique circumstances and the nuances, and protect our attorney “work product” from the regulators.

 

 

We have and will continue to protect top-tier advisers nationwide

And continue to provide an extra layer of protection to advisers currently working with non-lawyer compliance consultants, including helping advisers:

Review and consult regarding ADV filings in more complicated arrangements and situations;
Customize the Compliance Manual to fit the adviser's practice and to allocate responsibilities between the adviser and various other third-party service providers;
Create more than a Buy-Sell Agreement / Business Continuity Plan, but instead develop a Succession Plan that makes sense for both the adviser and his/her high net worth clients;
Conduct a thorough and on-site annual review of the adviser's compliance practices and procedures to protect the adviser's interests (and not just the custodian's interests);
Draft and review employment, confidentiality and non-compete agreements;
Prepare and review marketing and other materials to protect the adviser; and
Actively protect and defend advisers during state and SEC regulatory examinations.

Take advantage of the protection today.

I learned two important things working with Eccleston Law. First, I made a friend and ally with Jim and Steph for life. Secondly, and this is a crucial life lesson - if you need counsel, then seek out the very best. Jim was referred to me by a most trusted source. I've never had to hire an attorney for anything. Now, I know the value of hiring an important partner. Meticulous, thorough and detailed in preparation is the best way to describe Jim. Brilliant too, I might add. Bottom line, I would highly highly recommend Jim and Stephany for your legal needs. One of the best life decisions I've ever made.

Jim, Stephany and the whole team were a God send.  We felt like we were put into a situation where we had no advocate. Jim’s team came in with a strong, well laid out strategy on how to get our story heard. Where our outside compliance company had no ability to help, our Broker Dealer was impenitent, and the regulators were aggressive pursuing vague rules, Jim came like a barricade against an assault we did not understand. Though you pay member dues to be affiliated with FINRA and a B/D, you have no voice. The only thing that is truly heard in this un-level playing field is a bulldog’s bark like Jim’s. I would encourage anyone to call Jim and his team to find a real ally in the tough and complicated world of securities regulation. They are truly the best.
