Ernest Romer Lawsuit

Ernest J. Romer Investigation

ernest j romer lawsuit

From approximately 2014 through 2016, Romer defrauded at least 30 of his retail brokerage customers out of approximately $2.7 million. During that time period, Romer worked as a registered representative associated with CoreCap Investments, Inc., a registered broker-dealer with the SEC (“CoreCap Investments”).

Romer persuaded at least 30 of his customers to sell securities in their CoreCap Investments accounts and transfer the proceeds to either P&R Capital, LLC (“P&R Capital”) or CoreCap Solutions, LLC (“CoreCap Solutions”). Romer represented to customers that upon transferring money to P&R Capital and CoreCap Solutions, he would invest their money in the stock market and earn them a better return than their current investments. Based on Romer’s representations, the customers understood that CoreCap Solutions and P&R Capital were affiliated with CoreCap Investments.

Ernest J. Romer Lawsuit

According to the SEC’s complaint, “Romer’s statements to his customers were false. P&R Capital and CoreCap Solutions were Romer’s personal businesses and had no relationship to CoreCap Investments. Romer did not invest the customers’ money in the stock market for their benefit. He instead stole the money for his own personal use. Romer commingled approximately $2.7 million of customer funds with his advances from CoreCap Investments and other sources for a total of approximately $4.4 million. Of that, Romer used approximately $3.5 million for trading in his personal brokerage accounts, paid approximately $714,000 to cover his personal expenses, paid approximately $343,000 to customers of his prior brokerage firms, paid approximately $302,000 to customers of CoreCap Investments, and transferred approximately $41,000 to family members.”

The SEC’s complaint continued and stated, “by engaging in this conduct, Romer violated Section 17(a) of the Securities Act of 1933 (“Securities Act”) [15 U.S.C. § 77q(a)] and Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”) [15 U.S.C. § 78j(b)] and Rule 10b-5 [17 C.F.R. § 240.10b-5].

Typically, we represent clients on contingency fee agreements. If we take your case under a contingency fee arrangement, you won’t owe our firm any legal fees unless we are able to recover money for you.

Our contingency fee agreements are usually based on a percentage of the amount we recover for our clients. The contingency fee amount is determined by the type of case, our estimate of how long it will take to resolve your case, and our estimate of the litigation costs we will advance in your case. Each engagement agreement includes the details of the fee arrangement. Questions about our fee agreements are welcomed and encouraged.

In most litigation matters, it is extremely difficult – practically impossible – to predict how long it will take to resolve a particular case. Every case is different, and we will do our best to provide you with an estimate based on your case and our experience with similar cases. Moreover, we will do our best to keep you updated and manage expectations along the way.
