By: Soreide Law Group PLLC
POMPANO BEACH, Fla. - May 15, 2018 - PRLog -- The securities arbitration law firm, Soreide Law Group, PPLC, recovered $100,000 for a South Florida retiree after a three day hearing before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority ("FINRA") in Boca Raton, Florida. The claims were related to negligence and negligent supervision of J.H. Darbie & Co., and their former representative, Spencer Laufer (now banned from the securities industry), for a private placement investment sold to the Claimant. The case, FINRA case No. 17-01700, was an expedited hearing given the Claimants age, and was filed in June of 2017 with the award being published on May 14th, 2018. The investment at issue was an investment into Sunergy Land Trust, which was purportedly an investment into land which would be leased to solar wind farms.
The lead attorney for the Claimant was securities lawyer, Lars Soreide, Esq., who is the principal of Soreide Law Group, PLLC, and has been practicing securities law for over 10 years. Lars Soreide, Esq., has just been listed as one of the top 100 Trial Lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers Association. Soreide Law Group represents investors nationwide through the FINRA forum. The case was tried before a three member arbitration panel over three days in Boca Raton, Florida. The Respondents, J.H. Darbie & Co., Inc., and Spencer Laufer, were both found jointly and severally liable for negligence and negligent supervision which means both the firm and their former registered representative are both fully responsible for the payment of the award.
"Unfortunately, in most cases, the elderly and most vulnerable adults are targets of unscrupulous financial advisors and it is nice to be able to right a wrong and return the money back to the victim," said attorney, Lars Soreide, Esq. Soreide Law Group's main office is located in South Florida but they represent victims of financial fraud across the United States. Soreide expects the award to be paid within 30 days as ordered by the FINRA panel.
