Between October 31, 2014, and May 16, 2018, Reither allegedly failed to obtain approval from First Allied, before entering into an arrangement to borrow money from a client, and allegedly failed to provide prior written notice to the firm for an Outside Business Activity.

Recovery of Investment Losses
The White Law Group is investigating the liability that Reither’s former employer may have for failure to monitor his activities.
Brokerage firms are required to adequately supervise their advisors. They must ensure they are complying with FINRA rules.
When brokers abuse client accounts and conduct transactions that violate securities laws, such as unauthorized or excessive trading, the brokerage firm they are working with may be liable for investment losses. Brokerage firms that fail to monitor the business activities of their employees may be liable for investment losses due to negligent supervision for the misconduct of their employees.
The brokerage firms can be held responsible for any losses in a FINRA arbitration claim if it is determined that they failed to properly supervise their agent.
