July 2016-New York

The FINRA records of Michael S. Lavolpe  , a  currently unlicensed stockbroker who was  most recently employed by  Meyers Associates  disclose a pending regulatory event, 4 pending customer disputes, 2 prior customer disputes and an outstanding judgement/lien.

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) is the agency that licenses and regulates stockbrokers and brokerage firms.

In addition brokers are required to disclose certain financial matters such as personal bankruptcies, judgments and liens.

According to FINRA Disciplinary Proceeding 2015047559201, in October 2015, Lavolpe’s employer Meyers Associates reported to FINRA that a customer had filed an arbitration claiming that Lavolpe had engaged in unsuitable activity in the account. Lavolpe failed to respond to FINRA’s requests for information leading to the filing of the FINRA proceeding.

FINRA Case 15-01019 brought by a customer of Meyers Associates alleging unsuitability was settled for $60,000. FINRA Case 10-3764 brought by a Meyers Associates customer alleged churning, failure to supervise, negligence and breach of fiduciary duty. That case was settled for $60,000.

The four currently pending cases include:

  • FINRA Case 16-0402 in which a Meyers Associates customer alleges damages of $308,703 for unsuitable investments in penny stocks.
  • FINRA Case 16-0454 in which a customer alleges damages of $545,000 for unsuitable investments in private placements.
