Employment Attorneys for Broker Transition Contract Review

In the modern world of broker recruiting, take advantage of the fact that all deals are negotiable. Have an experienced employment attorney from Eccleston Law on your side to review the contract terms that the firm’s lawyer has drafted to protect his/her one and only client – the firm.

How can an employment attorney help you with the protocol for broker recruiting?

  • Nullify the many bad, firm-favorable contract provisions that the firm’s attorneys have inserted to gain an edge over you when the honeymoon ends.
  • Plan all aspects of a successful broker transition, even if the move is governed by the Protocol for Broker Recruiting.
  • Protect your rights while at the same time, working alongside the firm’s transition team and with the firm’s management team.
  • Turn the “dinner promises” into written agreements you can enforce.
  • Preserve your rights to complain and seek remedies when and how you want should the transition and employment not go as planned.

You wouldn’t buy a house without having an attorney for the closing, why on earth would you risk your professional career, your livelihood, and your clients’ well-being by not hiring a "Protocol for Broker Recruiting" lawyer to spend a few hours reviewing the employment contract and other contract terms?

Promissory Note Agreements, Employment Agreements, Memoranda of Understandings, and Addendums are just some of the legal documents that will affect your professional life. Contact the employment attorneys at Eccleston Law to review your broker transition contract and help you with the Protocol for Broker Recruiting.

“I never have had a client ask me for a refund of the $2,500 fixed fee to review the deal.
That’s because the value of our legal services is a no-brainer.”

- Jim Eccleston




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.
