Whether you’re a breakaway advisor, an existing RIA, a hybrid RIA, or a new RIA, you have one goal – to grow your business – whatever that means to you.
Few RIA owners have the time or the expertise to keep track of constantly changing SEC and State regulations. Most RIA owners don’t know all the rules and regulations they need to comply with, nor whether their program would pass regulatory scrutiny. This means many owners are left nervous, anxious, and worried about what is going to happen during their next exam. Our team of My RIA Lawyer attorneys and compliance staff consists of securities lawyers and compliance professionals ready to provide integrated compliance and legal support, allowing you to experience peace of mind and confidence going into your next regulatory exam.
We are securities attorneys that specialize in a broad range of legal and compliance services to address various regulatory issues facing financial services professionals and firms. We know only too well what best practices would keep regulators happy and keep the auditors away.
Our custom entity formation, registration, and ongoing compliance services provide a turnkey solution for your RIA firm to catapult into a fully operational business. Our RIA advisors regularly monitor, review, and document your firm’s activities and developments, so you can consistently demonstrate a culture of compliance and focus on building your practice.
Not your daddy's law firm
We take a no-nonsense approach to solving your problems. Forget about one-size-fits-all solutions; we roll up our sleeves and craft strategies that fit your financial business like a glove. We’re not just lawyers – we’re compliance partners, financial enthusiasts, and problem solvers.
We get it – you need answers, and you need them now. That’s where we come in, offering a blend of big-firm resources with the kind of personal attention you’d expect from a smaller one.
But what really sets us apart? We’re all about your success. Compliance is just the start; we’re here to help you thrive. We know the ins and outs of the financial world, and we’re not afraid to think outside the box to help you reach your goals while playing by the rules.
Making the jump to start your own firm is a big decision. Its stressful, hard work, and you have to learn a ton. This why I decided to hire a professional team to help establish my RIA the right way the first time. My RIA Lawyer’s team is absolutely amazing. They have demonstrated expert knowledge, personable staff, and they have shown us how much they genuinely care about setting us up for success by giving us the tools we need to help others. Thank you Leila and Liz for all of your hard work!
The initial consultation was extremely valuable. I definitely recommend speaking with them. I had very custom needs, and they rose to the task!
I worked with Leila as I was getting my new RIA firm up and running. Leila provided expert legal advice as a complement to the national compliance firm who was assisting me with my registration. I was introduced to Leila after I had already begun the process and not sure how I would have made it through without her. She was an invaluable resource and I look forward to working together again in the future!
I have used My RIA Lawyer for filing my Annual Amendments in the past and was very happy with their services and professionalism. Leila Shaver is very responsive, communicative, and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend their services!
Leila is an expert with compliance but she also offers a wealth of knowledge as a business owner. We discussed everything including compliance, marketing, business partnerships, and more. Even though my firm is not yet at a point to work with her, she has sent me multiple emails offering assistance with the things we spoke about during our meeting.
The attorneys at MyRIALawyer are always extremely attentive, responsive and competent. We look forward to expanding our relationship, as we continue to grow.
and help them understand what it is they actually need to be asking for.
We are the answer to All Your Questions.
“In life, it’s not that we don’t have enough time; it’s that we lose so much of it. We waste time on things that can be outsourced instead of spending time on things and people we love. I’d rather pay someone to clean my house and take that time to spend with my children. Our clients are happier letting us ‘clean house’ while they work with their clients. In the end, they have more satisfaction in their businesses and they’re happier overall.”
