SSEK Law Firm Representing GWG L Bond Investors Against These Broker-Dealers
GWG Holdings, Inc. sold $1.6B of L bonds to investors through more than 140 regional brokerage firms, including managing broker-dealer Emerson Equity. These financial firms earned high commissions and other fees from selling these risky life settlement-backed bonds to customers.
Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas (SSEK Law Firm at investorlawyers.com) represent many of these investors against the firms and registered representatives that unsuitably recommended and sold these junk bonds to them. Many L bondholders are retail customers, including retirees, who should have never invested in these private placement-like products.
L bond investors are alleging they were never suitably apprised of the risks involved or updated about GWG’s ongoing financial troubles. Visit GWG Holdings, Inc. and GWG Holdings L Bonds for more information.
