  • How  do  bad  brokers  continue  to  go  from  one  firm  to  the  next  and  continue  to fleece  clients? The  answer  is  as  simple  as  it  is  unpleasant: brokerage  firms  fail  to  disclose  material  information. Firms fail to warn existing customers, the broker's future customers, the broker's future employers, and regulators  about  a  departing  broker's  misconduct. Why do firms  do  this,  knowing  that  the  broker might continue the misconduct unabated and undetected, at least for awhile, at a new firm with old and new clients?    According  to  at  least  one  industry  trade  publication,  the  answer  is: the  threat  of  legal action  by  the  former  broker, arbitrations  brought  by  clients,  bad  public  relations,  and questions from regulators., Brokerage Firms' Liability When They Fail To Warn About Bad Brokers, PLI Securities Arbitration, Vol. 1 at Pg. 437 (Aug. 2009), 2009
