The White Law Group Files a Claim against Emerson Equity LLC for Investment Losses

The White Law Group announces the filing of a FINRA arbitration claim against Emerson Equity LLC for investment losses involving a high-risk alternative investment.   

The firm submitted a claim to FINRA Dispute Resolution on behalf of two California residents alleging claims for violation of common law fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, negligence, and negligent supervision.   

The claim further alleges that Emerson Equity LLC failed to supervise unsuitable recommendations in a high-risk alternative investment, CAI Investments Coatesville, DST. The claim seeks damages of $100,000 and $200,000.  

Brokerage firms have a fiduciary duty to adequately disclose the risks involved in an investment before recommending it to its clients.  It must perform the necessary due diligence to determine whether the investment is suitable for the investor.  Emerson Equity LLC allegedly failed to perform the necessary due diligence on these investments before recommending them to these investors.    

FINRA Dispute Resolution

FINRA, the regulator who oversees brokers and brokerage firms, provides FINRA Dispute Resolution as an arbitration venue for investors with claims against their brokerage firm or financial advisor.  It provides investors with an opportunity to attempt to recoup their investment losses and is an alternative to filing a claim in court.  
“Investors often suffer losses due to unsuitable investment recommendations by their brokers and don’t realize they have recovery options,” said D. Daxton White, managing partner of The White Law Group, a national securities fraud and FINRA arbitration firm.  
Brokerage firms are required to supervise their representatives to make sure that they are following FINRA rules. If it can be determined that the financial advisor’s employers failed to adequately supervise him, these firms can be held responsible for any resulting losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
The White Law Group is a national securities fraud, securities arbitration, and investor protection law firm with offices in Chicago, Illinois and Seattle, Washington.
