About Us


 



 

Our story? It's really your story, too.

AdvisorLaw has grown the way you have, keeping pace with the ever-increasing demands of the U.S. financial services market. But instead of trying to be all things to all people, AdvisorLaw has chosen to provide the most important things to one: the financial advisor or wealth manager.

This focus was set long before 2016, when our founder, Dochtor D. Kennedy, was lead counsel for a firm specializing in acquisition loan assistance for financial advisors. It didn’t take long for him to realize that their customers needed much more than just money—their concerns spanned from erroneous investor claims and unjustified BrokerCheck disclosures to employer contract disagreements and beyond. The need was clear.

Today, AdvisorLaw is the leading full-service firm providing industry representation to thousands of financial advisors and wealth managers, nationwide. That’s because we’ve grown with our clients, and we’ve kept our singular focus exclusively on them and no one else.

You see, it’s all about you.
