We Represent B/Ds, RIAs, FCMs, IBs, and CTAs On A Cost Effective Basis That Delivers Results

We represent firms in federal and state court and in arbitrations before FINRA, the NFA, various commodities and options, exchanges as well as in enforcement proceedings initiated by the S.E.C., C.F.T.C., FINRA, the NFA, the exchanges, state securities regulators, and in grand jury proceedings. Below are some of our representative results.

Nick has represented the following industry firms: Bear Stearns & Company, Inc.; A.G. Edwards and Sons; J. P. Turner & Company, LLC, Peregrine Financial Group; Vestor Capital Partners, LLC, R.J. O’Brien; Regal Securities, Alaron Trading Corp., MPS LORIA Financial Planners, LLC, InterOcean Securities, Kingsbury Capital Securities, CF Global Trading, Tiger Financial Group, LLC, Angelo Gordon & Company; Doerge Capital Management; Balis, Lewittes, and Coleman; Kiley Capital; Riverside Securities; Milwaukee Private Wealth Management, and Saul Stone & Company.

We have been very successful in implementing a strategy that reveals the weak points of the customer or brokers case against our client apparent at an early state of the litigation. Therefore the vast number of our representations result in a settlement for less than the cost of defense. The settlements are, of course confidential.
