Stoltmann Law Offices is investigating Scott Muirhead, who was recently barred from the industry by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). Allegedly, Muirhead engaged in unapproved private securities transactions, also known as “selling away.” This is when a broker offers and sells a security that is not held by his brokerage firm. It is typically to gain commissions that do not need to be shared with his firm. It is against securities rules and regulations. If you invested money with Scott Muirhead, you may be able to recover your losses in the FINRA arbitration forum on a contingency fee basis.
