Triad Advisors Sues Former Advisers

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

Last year, independent broker-dealer, Triad Advisors, Inc. sued a group of 3 advisers who left the firm for violating the terms of a promissory note from 2012. The note stipulated that they had to stay at Triad for a five-year period to repay the loan. After the 3 advisers left Triad they started their own broker-dealer, Arkadios Capital.

The lawsuit filed by Triad was an unusual move by an independent firm. Triad was among the first to recruit “hybrid" advisers, those with businesses that operated as both brokers licensed with FINRA and as advisers registered with the states or SEC. As a result of the lawsuit, the ex-advisers have filed an arbitration claim against Triad with FINRA. The cases are ongoing.
