How might employee stock options be managed?

Are You Putting Too Much Stock in Your Company?

With major Enron and Worldcom trials completed, stories of employees losing some or all their retirement income are back in the news. Now is a good time to ask yourself if you hold too much of your retirement nest egg in your employer's stock.

FINRA issued an Alert related to this issue because it is concerned that employees with the opportunity to invest in company stock may be concentrating too much of their retirement savings in a single security. FINRA is particularly concerned about employees investing all or most of their 401(k) assets in their company's stock. If, and when, the stock takes a beating, so will your retirement savings.

I hired Bryan to help me with an issue with a financial institution. Bryan and his assistant Melody Bounds were professional and personal while resolving my situation. Bryan's experience and expertise were crucial in the positive outcome. Both he and Melody spent long hours researching and preparing my case. There was excellent communication during the process and they always kept me informed on the current events in my case. They treated me like family and not just a client. I would highly recommend Bryan Forman to represent anyone that needs legal representation regarding possible malpractice regarding investment fraud. Bryan will listen sincerely to your situation and give you his honest opinion on the validity of your case. John
