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

  • “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.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • “They handle most of the deals in a timely fashion…Their execution was outstanding...Everything is done on time, there is no hint of under-staffing.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • “He keeps clients’ concerns and considerations in mind. You want to make sure the representation is appropriate given the claims at issue. The things I’ve liked about is that he’s a good business attorney. He keeps in mind the concerns of the business."

    -Chambers 2012

  • "Rik is a character, a trial lawyer of the highest degree. He is a consummate trial attorney and a phenomenal oral advocate with an ability to take complex issues and make sense of them, build out and present them in a common sense way.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • "Heather is a great lawyer; however, one of her best attributes is that she also thinks like a business person. She understands our needs and gives us practical, real-world advice -- not something you get from many lawyers."
