Eccleston Law Launches Search to Hire Additional Attorneys Nationwide

The needs of financial advisors for legal services never have been greater.  Advisors have come to realize that they cannot rely upon counsel provided by their firms, due to inherent conflicts of interest. Advisors also have come to realize that they cannot rely on general practitioner lawyers to provide competent legal advice.  

“Too much is at stake”, according to James Eccleston.  He says that because “advisors have developed lucrative practices, formed teams, have succession plans, and service clients at such a high level”, advisors must retain specialized legal counsel who are intimately familiar with the financial services industry, have substantial experience, are highly competent and, above all, are independent of conflicts of interest arising from their representation of financial services firms.

Accordingly, Eccleston has begun a nationwide search to expand its ranks of qualified attorneys.  “The pandemic has demonstrated to all kinds of businesses that remote work not only is acceptable but often has unique advantages”, he says. However, he notes that, “The key to excellence is state of the art technology, which takes law firm operations to the next level.” One example relates to hearings and trials on Zoom. “We predicted that Zoom and remote hearings/trials would be long term, and in response, we have developed and continue to develop advanced technology to make our hearing and trial presentations replicate if not better our in-person advocacy.”

Qualified attorneys, who are excited to take this new step in their careers, should contact James Eccleston at jeccleston@ecclestonlaw.com
