Concern with Private Placement Offerings

Samuels Yoelin Kantor LLP

Banks Law Office continues to express reservations about the new advertising rules for Reg D Private Placements.

The majority of our investor clients over the last few years have been people who purchased private placements on the advice of a financial advisor,” said Banks. “While there may be a small place for private placements in portfolios of sophisticated investors, no one should make these investments without first deciding that they can afford to lose their entire investment, because that is what we have seen happen, time and again.” Advisors who recommend that elderly investors place 25% or more of their portfolios into private placements are doing so for one reason – commissions. This week FINRA issued an Investor Alert to warn potential consumers about the risks involved with these investments

Client Reviews

Thank you for your most kind and efficient treatment during my dilemma.


Darlene was so helpful in this matter, I had been trying for months to get help and she came through for me . . . I would recommend her in a heartbeat.


From the first time I spoke with her about my lawsuit, to the successful conclusion, Darlene was always the support I needed.


You folks put on an excellent case and we were, to say the least, extremely nervous about the outcome.
