New York Securities False and Misleading Statement Attorney

New York has thousands of stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices. With so many stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices, comes the potential for their stockbrokers, financial advisors, and other representatives to fail to disclose material facts making the statements made about the stock, bond and other securities false and misleading and other stockbroker misconduct which violates Federal and New York securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules and stock brokerage firms policies and procedures.

For example, Jaoshiang Luo aka Rudy Luo of Flushing, New York was named in a Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) complaint claiming that he violated his suitability obligations, made material misstatements, and omitted material facts in relation to the sale of promissory notes issued by his firm’s New York, New York-based Westrock Advisors, Inc., parent company, Westrock Group, Inc., which failed to make payments it owed to retail investors. According to FINRA, Mr. Luo had no reasonable basis for recommending the promissory notes to any customer and failed to review financial statements or other financial information to understand Westrock Group’s financial condition prior to selling the notes. FINRA alleged, Mr. Luo recommended the notes to specific customers that were unsuitable for their investment. FINRA further alleged that Mr. Luo made misstatements and omissions such as the actual financial condition of the Westrock Group, his lack of knowledge of the financial condition of Westrock Group, and the safety of the promissory note investments. FINRA’s findings also stated that Mr. Luo did not properly investigate Westrock Group to determine whether the securities being offered were suitable recommendations to any customer. Additionally, FINRA alleged that Mr. Luo had no reasonable grounds to believe that his recommendations were suitable based on the facts disclosed by the customers as to their other securities holdings, financial situation, and needs.

Client Reviews

Robert Pearce is part of that unusual breed of lawyers that are able to create empathy with clients and thoroughly adopt their cause. No half efforts here. He and his group of professionals are outstanding strategists that can execute with precise fervor and unyielding determination. Theirs is a huge wave of facts, research, precedents and preparation, that has impressed me in its thoroughness and creativity, and most importantly with the results. No stone goes unturned and no effort is ever spared. In my book, he and they are those of a very rare kind that one wants to keep for a very long time. Ramon F.

This law firm is the real deal. We were so lucky that they took our case as they have so much experience in securities and all the wrongdoing that happens in these investment companies where they mislead you and your money (as in our case) into schemes that are not what you think they are. Mr. Robert Pearce is one of the best lawyers around, a truly professional who will fight for you and will tell you as it is all the time. Astrid M.
★★★★★
Mr. Pearce is a great professional and attorney. He led me through every step of the process in a clear, direct and straightforward manner. I highly recommend him as a securities attorney. Rey S.

Just like the song from HAMILTON, it's so nice to have Bob Pearce on your side. He is the consumate plaintiff's lawyer: smart. dedicated, fully able to try a case but a great negotiator in a mediation. He did a wonderful job for us, fully supporting us through the process and more than holding his own against a large national law firm. Maurice Z.

No lawyer except Bob said I had a chance of winning. When Ubs lawyers laughingly offered me zero to settle the dispute, Bob became even more determined to prove everybody wrong. Bob was extremely prepared, and always a step ahead of the opposing attorneys throughout the arbitration. In the end, Bob and I had the last laugh when the arbitrators awarded me almost 6 million dollars. J. Blanco
