Our Founder

Lee Holland is a passionate and committed advocate known in the legal community for his stalwart work on behalf of investors, organizations, and communities.

Lee believes in the strength of community. He has acted on this principle throughout his life. Passion, planning, then giving his utmost in performance is the mission. That is what drives Lee to give his best.  

Lee obtained his undergraduate degree from Princeton University and his Law degree from Cornell Law School. During these years Lee expanded his horizons with liberal arts courses on Shakespeare, Chaucer, and many other producers of art that spoke to him.

Ever to uphold his fundamental duty to ensure the highest ethics and the zealous and strategic practice of law, Lee doggedly pursues claims and defenses for those clients he partners with, drawing on experience as a defense attorney then a Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitrator as a public neutral, beginning in 2005, and since 2010, a consumer interests advocate focused on FINRA claims.  

Lee’s path began to emerge as the natural culmination of his education, life experiences, and innate passions. Lee has consciously chosen to direct his advocacy in order to turn the tables on abusers of power in the financial industry, where the stakes are so very high.

Lee was certified in 2016 as a Regulatory Compliance Professional (CRCP) after completing instruction at The Wharton Institute, a collaborative, examination-based program organized by FINRA. Wharton professors in ethics, business, mathematics, and other disciplines taught courses. Experienced SEC regulators and enforcement personnel, security experts, IT department heads, international financial institutions, leading academics, economists, and others offered first-hand experience of their various perspectives. Finally, through contributions in class made by hedge fund managers, brokers, investment advisers, and other experienced industry attorneys and industry-related professionals, Lee gained knowledge from industry insiders of their pragmatic perspective and of the real-world dynamics involved in approximating compliance within the regulatory environment affecting the financial industry.

Lee’s detailed understanding of securities regulation affecting the financial industry is not only highly relevant to compliance policy-making and audits, but also is quite helpful to Lee’s advocacy whenever compliance issues emerge in a claim, which is quite often.

The foundation of our practice is our values and shared mission to even the odds. The privilege of trust we develop with clients reflects a shared commitment to seek justice for you.
