Advisors Breaking Away
Legal risks. Business Factors. Regulatory Considerations. Navigating through these and other issues are challenging, particularly as financial professionals breakaway from one firm to either form their own firm or merge with another team, acquire a practice or sell their book of business. The attorneys at the Jacko Law Group, PC (“JLG”) focus on transition services and are ready to provide solutions for complex issues you will face during this journey.
