The Sand Brothers Are Right At Home At Laidlaw & Company

Apparently winning money against a brokerage firm in arbitration is no guarantee of actually receiving the money. Attorney Brian McDonough won $664,217 from Sand Brothers for his client, however, with multiple arbitrations pending against the brokerage firm, it was possible that his client wouldn’t get his full award. Fortunately, McDonough’s client eventually received all of his money, but others might not since Sands Brothers is withdrawing as a broker-dealer from the NASD, after having already withdrawn as a member of the New York Stock Exchange. Sands Brothers continue to appeal awards and offer settlements, knowing that the NASD and NYSE can’t suspend them. Individuals who have won awards also fear that Martin and Steven Sands are moving their remaining assets to Laidlaw & Company, where both hold brokerage registrations.

Laidlaw & Company has its own problems; the firm is being sued by former client Relmada Therapeutics, which claims that Laidlaw & Company and principles Matthew Eitner, CEO and James Ahern, Managing Partner and Head of Capital Markets disseminated false and misleading proxy materials. Relmada claims that Laidlaw & Co. put out the false information because Matthew Eitner and James Ahern wanted to take control the drug company.

Education and music breakthrough

Norka Luque pursued a Business Administration degree in France and graduated with Marketing, Fashion, and Culinary Arts. During her college life in France, she joined a band, which revitalized her dream of establishing a prosperous musical career.

According to Norka, working with Emilio is a blessing. The talented singer strives to learn new things that can strengthen her musical career as each day passes.

Overcoming a severe personal crisis

Norka Luque gained an excessive amount of weight after undergoing a serious personal crisis. The crisis was a threat to her musical career, which was already thriving. Being a strong woman, she embraced a weight loss program created by her personal trainer and lost 32 kilograms. She continues to work out under the guidance of the same personal trainer. Norka has regained her figure and perfect shape. She looks very different from the way she looked during the Miss Venezuela that was held in 2011. She exercises on a regular basis and plays tennis, but on a semi-professional level.

This song is indisputably a recipe for victory. In fact, it has ruled the musical charts in Venezuela, the United States, and Puerto Rico. A team of professionals comprised of veteran producers led by prominent entrepreneur Emilio Estefan, composers such as Archie Pena, Hermanos Gaitan, and Luigi Giraldo played an instrumental role in the creating of the song MILAGRO. With this song, Norka encourages people struggling with a personal crisis to remain strong and determined.
