The White Law Group is currently representing two former UBS financial advisors in a litigation matter involving their alleged promissory note obligation to UBS. Based on our preliminary investigation, it appears that these particular financial advisors were forced to leave UBS because UBS did away with a trading program that was critical to their business and that the platform’s elimination greatly impacted their ability to effectively service their clients.
Notwithstanding the fact that these financial advisors were basically forced to leave UBS and their business has suffered as a result, UBS has sent the advisors a demand letter for the amounts they owe on their promissory note agreements and has indicated that they intend to file claims against these financial advisors for breach of contract if the matters are not quickly resolved.
We are investigating whether other UBS financial advisors were similarly forced to leave the firm as a result of the elimination of any trading platforms. Such information would assist us in demonstrating that UBS’s failure to provide these financial advisors with the necessary trading platform to conduct their business was a firm wide issue that impacted many financial advisors.
If you have any information that would assist us in our investigation, please contact our Chicago, Illinois office at 312-238-9650.
