National investment fraud lawyer KlaymanToskes announced today that it filed a securities arbitration claim against Emerson Equity and its Los Angeles-based broker Tony Barouti concerning GWG Holdings’ L Bonds.
According to the claim, Tony Barouti recommended that a California retiree invests in an unsuitable, highly speculative, illiquid private placement known as an “L Bond” issued by the Dallas-based financial services firm, GWG Holdings. Barouti’s customer invested in GWG’s L Bonds after hearing the broker’s advertisements on a local radio station in Los Angeles. Since the Claimant’s initial investment in June 2020, GWG stopped paying interest and principal payments, and the Company is currently navigating Chapter 11 bankruptcy and an SEC investigation.
Former and current customers of Emerson Equity and broker Tony Barouti with losses in excess of $75,000, and those who have information relating to the manner in which their accounts were handled, are encouraged to contact Lawrence L. Klayman, Esq. at 1 (888) 997-9956.
