(April 8, 2011) – Briggs and Morgan attorneys Frank Taylor and Jessica Stomski successfully defended one of the world’s largest broker-dealers in FINRA arbitration against claims that the firm failed to properly supervise one of its brokers, who allegedly recommended a risky naked put option strategy for an octogenarian suffering from dementia.
