The Peiffer Rosca Wolf investment recovery lawyers are on the move and currently investigating the recent sales of REITs by Nicholas Schorsch’s Realty Capital Securities.

According to reports currently being reviewed by attorneys Joe Peiffer and Alan Rosca, several leading independent broker-dealers, with 38,800 registered reps and investment advisers, allegedly pulled out of, at least temporarily, the selling of ARC or Cole REITs.

The recent reports are the latest bit of alleged bad news, negative publicity and apparent infighting for Schorsch’s REIT Empire, including American Realty Capital (ARC) and Cole branded REITs.

On November 12, 2014, reports currently being reviewed by attorneys Joe Peiffer and Alan Rosca also surfaced that ARC was allegedly suing RCS Capital Corporation over the reported failed Cole Capital transaction.

RCAP’s alleged deal to buy Cole from ARCP was announced at the start of October, wherein RCAP was allegedly to pay at least $700 million for the Cole assets.

Nicholas Schorsch is chairman and CEO of ARC, and is also the former CEO and current chairman of ARCP, which owns Cole Capital Partners and Cole Capital Advisors Inc.
