Wirehouse Sues Registered Investment Advisory Firm

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC: 

A battle between Wells Fargo Advisors and a former employee turned ugly when emails leaked showing the employee purportedly had funneled business to his new firm, while still employed at Wells Fargo.

Wells Fargo accuses the rep of funneling business for eight months before he officially left the company. He is alleged to have breached his fiduciary duty and to have engaged in a “civil conspiracy.” Wells Fargo is asking for more than $1.7 million in damages.

The attorneys of Eccleston Law LLC represent investors and advisers nationwide in securities and employment matters. Our attorneys draw on a combined experience of nearly 65 years in delivering the highest quality legal services.
