Don't Take the Wrong Way Out

October 22, 2012

On Oct. 14, 2012, an article by Burr & Forman attorneys Victor Hayslip and Ben Coulter was published in Investment News. Titled, "Don't Take the Wrong Way Out," the piece describes "war stories" on departing brokers who leave their companies without regard for key issues, sometimes finding themselves in the middle of costly litigation, regulatory inquire and even embarrassment. Hayslip and Coulter address the repercussions for these brokers as well as how investment firms and their brokers alike can avoid costly legal issues when the broker leaves to join another firm.

TESTIMONIALS

  • “I have had the pleasure of working with Jay Price since 1997.  Over the years, he has provided outstanding representation for the banks I have worked for and continues to make the loan closing process a good experience for both the bank and our borrowers.  Even with the growth of Jay’s practice over the years, he always makes me feel as if I am his only client and always provides me top notch service.”

  • “Larry’s knowledge of the bankruptcy code is as good as I’ve seen in my years working with Chapter 11 cases and financially distressed companies. He also brings a practical side in resolving issues with various creditor groups. This ability to address various groups the strong and weak points in a non-confrontational manner avoids undue delay and costly litigation in many cases. However, when confrontation is unavoidable, Larry is quite the fine trial lawyer as well.”

  • “Very good, very well-rounded, and they have a lot of expertise in multiple fields. They do a very good job and are very cost-effective. They have very capable people at multiple levels, so if it’s associate-level work we’re not getting charged for a partner doing it.”
