Request for Additional Information, 8210 Requests
There are times when firms receive Request for Additional Information, (8210 requests). It is extremely important that these requests be handled quickly and accurately as it is a reflection on your firm.
For some firms this means hiring an attorney which could cost anywhere from $300 to $500 per hour. At JRS our seasoned professionals have responded to hundreds of requests from regulators at a fraction of the cost of an attorney.
