Tucson Ethanol-investment Firm and Founder and CEO Scott Brittenham Looking at SEC Charges

Investment fraud lawyersHave you invested with Clean Energy Capital LLC (CEC) and Scott Brittenham? The Peiffer Rosca Wolf investment fraud attorneys are currently investigating CEC’s CEO and his Tucson-based ethanol investment firm, which has been charged by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) with allegedly improperly shifting expenses to investment funds they manage.

In an administrative order currently being reviewed by attorneys Joe Peiffer and Alan Rosca, the SEC’s Enforcement Division alleges that CEC and its founder and CEO, Scott Brittenham, inappropriately paid firm expenses by using assets from 19 private equity funds which invest in private ethanol production plants.

The SEC further alleges that CEC allegedly marketed 19 separate private equity funds to investors using Ethanol Capital Partners, LP (ECP).  Each fund was reportedly marketed as a separate entity, labeled by a letter such as Fund A.

In sum, the 20 CEP Funds allegedly raised $64 million from hundreds of investors, according to SEC documents currently under review by attorneys Joe Peiffer and Alan Rosca.
