The White Law Group is investigating the potential liability of brokerage firms registered with FINRA regarding their recommendations of high-risk 1031 DST investments to investors. This inquiry delves into whether brokerage firms have been negligent in their duty to inform and protect investors from the inherent risks associated with 1031 DST investments. It is worth noting that these investments are primarily endorsed by brokerage firms, mainly due to the attractive high commissions they receive for facilitating and selling these investments, despite the acknowledged risks.
