FINRA Discipline: FINRA Rule 9211- Authorization of Complaint

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

This is the first of a series of posts to discuss the rules associated with the FINRA disciplinary process. FINRA Rule 9211 provides authority to the Department of Enforcement or the Department of Market Regulation to issue a complaint against an associated person.  

A disciplinary complaint is issued when an associated person has violated, or is continuing to violate, any rule, regulation, or statutory provision, including the federal securities laws and the regulations thereunder.

Once a complaint is severed, the disciplinary proceeding will commence.

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.
