J.P. Morgan Seeks TRO Over Departing Advisor

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law:

J.P. Morgan Chase’s brokerage business has requested that a Louisville, Kentucky, federal court issue a temporary restraining order (TRO) barring one of its former advisors from soliciting its clients. 

J.P. Morgan Securities alleges that Timothy Logsdon brought $17 million in client assets to his new firm, BLVD Private Wealth Management, which violates his employment agreements. According to J.P. Morgan, Logsdon joined BLVD in November 2021 and previously had managed $153 million for at least 289 clients. 

BLVD’s website lists Chris Brady as its founder and Ashley Baumgardner as its office manager, both of which previously worked for J.P. Morgan. Logsdon allegedly informed clients that he would provide “more investment options” and “lower fees” at BLVD. Further, Logsdon alleged stated that J.P. Morgan advisors who had been assigned their accounts “already have too many accounts to service” and “are only concerned with growing their business”, according to the complaint.

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.
