Investment Problems with Stockbroker William LeBoeuf

Maddox Hargett & Caruso is looking into allegations that William LeBoeuf, an Ohio-based financial adviser, acted inappropriately in the sale of private placements to clients of his previous employers, Merrill (formerly Merrill Lynch) and Cetera Advisor Networks.

LeBoeuf was suspended for a year by FINRA last week after it was discovered that he inappropriately participated in the sale of private shares in a real estate investment fund and a software company. LeBoeuf allegedly failed to fully communicate the illiquidity and hazards of some transactions to potential investors, according to FINRA. LeBoeuf has been fired by Cetera.

Securities offered in a non-public sale are known as private placements. These investments are often illiquid, meaning they can’t be purchased and sold quickly, and they’re also very risky. We’d like to hear from you if you sustained losses as a result of LeBoeuf’s investing advice.

Contact us immediately for a free consultation to discuss your legal options if you believe LeBoeuf offered unsuitable private placements to you.
