Securities Attorneys for State Licensing and Registration

In addition to defending brokers and financial advisors in a vast array of administrative actions before FINRA, the SEC, and self-regulatory agencies and professional organizations such as the CFP Board, the securities attorneys at Eccleston Law routinely assist brokers and financial advisors in understanding and navigating state securities regulatory, licensing, and registration matters as well as state administrative proceedings, nationwide.

With two offices in Florida, alone, our firm has particularly valued experience in defending brokers and financial advisors with investigations and disciplinary actions undertaken by the Florida Office of Financial Regulation (“FL OFR”).

Whether you are applying for registration, amending Form ADV disclosures, or have received a request for documents and information following an examination, our securities attorneys may be able to help prevent an inquiry from evolving into a formal investigation or further disciplinary action.
