Retired Widower Goes Bust Thanks to Bad Real Estate Deal

The Green Firm recently filed a Statement of Claim through FINRA’s arbitration process to recover in excess of $25,000 on behalf of our client against Lawson Financial Corp., the supervising brokerage firm of a broker who may have been seeking higher commissions when he allegedly negligently steered a retired elderly widower into a private commercial real estate deal, Prestige Equity Partners No. 4 LLC, that went bust. Not only did the deal expose our client to undue risk, but it was completely unsuitable for him, since he was not an “accredited investor” who could withstand major losses and liquidity problems in his investment account, which was composed of his life-savings.
