Windermere Florida Securities Attorneys Handling Hedge Fund Investment Disputes

Windermere Florida has a number 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 misrepresent and mislead investors about investing in Hedge Funds and engage in all kinds of stockbroker misconduct which violates Federal and Florida securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules and stock brokerage firms policies and procedures.

For example, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) charged Jay Sumner of Windermere Florida for being part of an alleged hedge fund fraud. Mrs. Sumner was a registered investment advisor and a principal of Freedom Capital before allegedly enabling clients to place mutual fund orders after 4:00 p.m. ET. Mrs. Sumner and the defendants allegedly submitted orders through JB Oxford, who allowed trade orders to be submitted through 4:15 p.m. ET and accepted confirmations until 4:45 p.m. ET while still receiving that day's NAV. In one year, over 95 of the 1,959 orders were placed or modified after 4:00 p.m. ET. The scheme continued when the respondents allegedly misrepresented themselves to become members of the National Securities Clearing Corporation (NSCC). Mrs. Sumner and others allegedly created five entities, Unified Pension Inc., National Pension Plans Inc., Retirement Planning Consultants Inc., Pension Planning Professionals Inc., and Benefit Planning Consultants Inc. to receive approval to register the entities as members of the NSCC, giving them the ability to submit mutual fund purchases until 3:00 a.m. ET. In one month, Mrs. Sumner and the defendants allegedly processed 63 late mutual fund purchases and 50 sales through two of the entities. In a settlement with the SEC, Mrs. Sumner was ordered to disgorge $31,649.50 and pay prejudgment interest of $5,613.86 for a total of $37,263.36 to be paid to the U.S. Treasury.

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
