Securities Attorneys For CFA and CIMA Matters

The securities attorneys at Eccleston Law represent advisors and analysts in investigations, complaints, and other disciplinary actions initiated by the CFA Institute and CIMA (now known as the Investments and Wealth Institute). Financial advisors and analysts with the CFA or CIMA (CPWA or RMA) designation must follow certain codes of conduct.

Failure to follow such codes of conduct may result in an investigation, disciplinary action and resulting private censure, public letter of admonition, suspension of the right to use the certification or even permanent revocation of the certification.

 

NOTICE OF INVESTIGATION AND POSSIBLE DISCIPLINARY HEARING

Investigations should not be taken lightly.  When a financial advisor or analyst receives an inquiry of any kind, legal counsel is highly recommended to consult and/or be in the forefront of communicating with and dealing with the investigator in charge.

In many cases, a disciplinary complaint is filed. There are strict rules and procedures to follow in the disciplinary process.  An attorney strongly is recommended at this stage of the disciplinary process.
