Hanley Law is currently investigating claims against Jason Marshall (CRD No.: 4012664) and Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC (CRD No.: 19616). The Hanley Law recently filed a FINRA Arbitration claim on behalf of a Claimant in which it was alleged that Jason Marshall made certain representations that were materially false, and that the Claimant relied on those false representations to his detriment. Furthermore, Claimant alleged that Wells Fargo Advisors omitted material facts in making investment recommendations to him. Claimant alleged that Wells Fargo Advisors, through their registered representative Jason Marshall, recommended an unsuitable investment strategy. Indeed, Claimant alleged that Wells Fargo Advisors and Jason Marshall recommended a 72(t) election with unsustainable monthly distributions. Additionally, Claimant alleged Marshall over-allocated his accounts to equity investments. It was further alleged that Wells Fargo Advisors ignored Claimant’s age and financial position in making the unsuitable investment recommendations. Claimant alleges that due to Wells Fargo Advisor’s misconduct, Claimant has suffered out-of-pocket losses for which he seeks a recovery.
FINRA Rule 3010 requires each member to establish and maintain a system to supervise the activities of each registered representative and associated person in order to achieve compliance with the securities laws, regulations, and FINRA rules. FINRA rule 3010 requires broker dealers to ensure that their associated persons adhere to FINRA’s suitability guidelines.
In the recently filed arbitration claim, the Claimant alleged that Wells Fargo Advisors, through its registered representative Jason Marshall, violated industry rules, including but not limited to, FINRA’s customer suitability standard (Rule 2310) as well as FINRA rules 3010 and 2110 and that Respondents violated their duty of care and were negligent. Furthermore, it has been alleged that Wells Fargo Advisors breached the contract that was entered into between Claimant and Wells Fargo Advisors and that Wells Fargo Advisors also breached the fiduciary duty that a securities firm and its employees/agents owe to their clients. Lastly, it has been alleged that Wells Fargo Advisor’s misconduct constitutes common law fraud and that the Claimant’s account was handled negligently, that Wells Fargo Advisors was negligent in their hiring, retention, and supervision of their employees.
