Eccleston Law: FPA of Illinois Lauds Eccleston's Presentation on What Advisors Should and Shouldn't do to Avoid Litigation

Posted on March 10th, 2011 at 9:00 AM
From the Winter 2011 Issue of Financial Planning Association of Illinois' Newsletter

Jim Eccleston kicked off the FPA of Illinois' Distinguished Speakers Series on January 28, 2011.  Warren Arnold, the Director of Education, Ethics & Professional Standards, discussed Jim's presentation:
Jim is an attorney who specializes in securities litigation. He has both defended and prosecuted financial advisors, as well as serve as an arbitrator for financial services disputes.  Jim spoke on what advisors should do and what they shouldn’t do in order to avoid litigation or arbitration situations.  He also gave ideas on what to do in order to defend yourself in case a suit is brought against you.  Jim used several examples from his practice to illustrate what can happen to an advisor. He used his humor to lighten up a very serious subject, which is important but not one that advisors like to talk about. The many questions that Jim received after his presentation was indicative of the level of interest the audience had for his presentation.
