Stacy Santmyer: Stacy Santmyer heads up business development for AdvisorLaw, LLC, a firm based out of Broomfield, CO that is dedicated to protecting the professional integrity and reputation of all financial advisors. As a former Registered Representative and Enrolled Agent, Stacy consults and provides strategies for mitigating and expunging customer complaints that have no merit against Series-licensed financial advisors. FINRA licensed brokers and Registered Investment Advisors (RIA) may face numerous frivolous lawsuits over their career. Spurred by attorneys aimed at negotiating quick cash settlements from firms, many advisors are incorrectly named or have been the subject of erroneous allegations. AdvisorLaw specializes in Rule 2080 arbitration that provides for expungement of meritless customer disputes previously disclosed that currently appear on an advisor’s BrokerCheck profile and CRD. The expungement of these claims can help to put the advisor back onto a level playing field with other advisors in the industry.
Staying at the forefront of the regulatory environment, Stacy works closely with AdvisorLaw’s senior FINRA attorneys in providing advisors the knowledge to navigate ever-tightening compliance rules. In this capacity, Stacy trains and manages the business development side of the firm in techniques to identify those financial advisors who would benefit most from the regulatory arbitration process. As brokers and RIAs face new fiduciary standards, Stacy and his team work to clean up and preserve their client’s reputation in the financial services industry.
Prior to AdvisorLaw, Stacy spent eight years advising small businesses on correcting, resolving, and expunging federal tax issues. Originally from West Virginia, Stacy has lived in Lafayette, Colorado for the last 38 years. With his wife, Alison, and two sons, Evan and Jesse, Stacy and his family enjoy biking throughout Colorado in the summer and taking advantage of the skiing and snowboarding in the winter.
