Leila Shaver, Securities Attorney and Founder of My RIA Lawyer, a law firm that helps financial advisors and firms navigate the legal complexities of the RIA space, has been selected to Rising Stars in the Georgia Super Lawyers list for 2021 and 2022. According to the Super Lawyers website, “This peer designation is awarded only to a select number of accomplished attorneys in each state. The Rising Stars selection process takes into account peer recognition, professional achievement in legal practice, and other cogent factors.”
Since embarking on her career as a securities attorney over a decade ago, Shaver, a compliance nerd and RIA expert, has worked with hundreds of RIAs in various career phases and settings, from start-ups to multibillion-dollar AUM firms. Before founding My RIA Lawyer in 2012, she was a Chief Compliance Officer for a $2 billion AUM firm, General Counsel and CCO for a $600 million AUM firm, and compliance and legal partner for a $1 billion TAMP.
The only law firm focused solely on the RIA space, My RIA Lawyer’s services include RIA registration, compliance services, regulatory defense, private fund services, mergers and acquisitions, mock examinations, expungements, and arbitration services. Shaver and her team share the mission of assisting RIAs in these areas so that they can spend more time focused on transforming the lives of their clients.
“I am humbled and honored to be included on the Rising Stars Super Lawyers list for 2021 and 2022,” enthuses Shaver. “At My RIA Lawyer, we are a bunch of RIA compliance and legal nerds who are passionate about helping RIAs by providing legal and compliance support to free them to focus on what they do best. Our clients are happier letting us ‘clean house’ while working with their clients to achieve their financial goals. Consequently, they have more satisfaction in their businesses, and they’re happier overall. My RIA Lawyer’s success and the achievement of Rising Stars for two consecutive years are due in large part to my excellent team of legal and compliance experts. I am grateful to them for their contributions and to my legal peers for their recognition. I look forward to serving RIA clients for many years to come.”
