The attorneys at Gana Weinstein LLP are investigating BrokerCheck records reports that financial advisor Christopher Miller (Miller), currently employed by Emerson Equity LLC (Emerson Equity) has been subject to at least two customer complaints during the course of his career. One of those complaints appears to have been expunged through FINRA’s notoriously flawed expungement process. According to records kept by The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), Mr. Miller’s customer complaints alleges that Mr. Miller recommended unsuitable investments in various investments including allegations involving private placements and real estate securities, among other allegations of misconduct relating to the handling of their accounts.
In February 2020, a customer complained that Mr. Miller violated the securities laws by alleging that Mr. Miller engaged in financial elder abuse, involving a 1031 exchange investment. The claim alleges $292,000 in damages. This complaint was subsequently expunged from Mr. Miller’s record.
In October 2019, a customer complained that Mr. Miller violated the securities laws by alleging that Mr. Miller engaged in the sale of unsuitable securities, breach of fiduciary duty, and financial elder abuse. The claim settled in the amount of $57,000.
