Broker Alert: Firm Misrepresenting Licensing Consequences to Brokers with Unpaid Prom Notes

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

It has come to our attention that a major independent BD is telling reps, who leave the firm with unpaid forgivable loans, that they will lose their securities license if they do not pay the brokerage firm the remaining balance on the note. This is flatly untrue, and a result that often can be avoided with competent securities counsel.

Should any reps be told such falsehoods, please contact us so that we can protect your rights and pursue any available remedies.

The attorneys of Eccleston Law LLC represent investors and advisers nationwide in securities and employment matters. The securities lawyers at Eccleston Law also practice a variety of other areas of securities for financial investors including Securities FraudUnauthorized TradingBreach of Fiduciary DutyRetirement Planning Negligence, and much more.
