Morgan Stanley may have violated ERISA rules when it cancelled certain deferred compensation assets for brokers who left the firm.
We are investigating claims for Morgan Stanley advisors who were denied their deferred compensaton payments when they left the firm. There is a proposed class action pending, but individual advisors may be better served by bringing their individual claims as FINRA arbitrations. We are reviewing claims for a number of former Morgan Stanley advisors, and are interested in speaking to others who have been denied compensation.
