In April 2019, a former client of Morgan Stanley won an award in a FINRA arbitration for compensatory damages for $127,000 for losses sustained from stock losses in a public company, Omeros Corporation. The investors were clients of financial advisor Mary Suhr (CRD# 5051921).

The causes of action included breach of fiduciary duty; breach of contract; and negligence. The causes of action relate to Claimant’s vested stock options in public company, Omeros Corporation, which allegedly expired without exercise. The FINRA arbitration hearing was conducted in San Francisco, California.

Suhr has been registered with Morgan Stanley in Palo Alto, California since 2009.

Pursuant to FINRA Rules, member firms are responsible for supervising a broker’s activities during the time the broker is registered with the firm. Therefore, Morgan Stanley may be liable for investment or other losses suffered by Suhr’s customers.
