Minnesota Securities Account Mismanagement Attorney

Minnesota 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 mismanage securities and other investment accounts and engage in all sorts of misconduct which violates Federal and Minnesota securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules and stock brokerage firms policies and procedures.

For example, Lance Ziesemer of Waconia, Minnesota submitted an AWC to FINRA for allegedly implementing a trading strategy and making unsuitable recommendations to two customers in connection with Unit Investment Trusts (UITs). Between January 2011 and December 2012, Mr. Ziesemer allegedly recommended that two customers repeatedly sell UITs that they had held for a short time only to repurchase different UITs. According to FINRA, customers, following Mr. Ziesemers recommendations made 36 short-term UIT switches. UITs are not designed to be used as trading vehicles and typically carry significant upfront charges making short term trading generally improper. These short-term UIT transactions resulted in approximately $160,000 in combined net losses for the two Feltl customers. Additionally, Mr. Ziesemer received $38,889 in commissions for the alleged unsuitable UIT recommendations. This alleged conduct is a violation of NASD Conduct Rule 2310, FINRA Rule 2111, and FINRA Rule 2010. Without admitting or denying the FINRA allegations, Mr. Ziesemer agreed to the sanctions and was suspended from association with any FINRA member for three months and ordered to pay a $7,500 fine.

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
