Top-Rated FINRA Arbitration Attorney
We have recovered over $100MM from unauthorized or excessive trading, unsuitable investments, broker churn, and other investment fraud issues. (See Case Studies for examples). An extra advantage that we bring to clients in the FINRA arbitration process is our experience and relationships with the brokerage insurance industry. Since settlements are often deeply influenced by insurers’ willingness to pay, our knowledge, contacts, and experience has given out clients a major advantage in the FINRA process.
What does FINRA Arbitration Cost?
As an alternative to an investment fraud lawsuit, FINRA Arbitration is usually a significantly shorter and less expensive process. However, the processes are not at all the same, and it’s important to have a FINRA Arbitration lawyer who is experienced in both the financial aspects of investment fraud and FINRA Arbitration procedure.
We offer a contingent fee structure on qualified cases. That means that we don’t succeed unless you do, so you can be sure of having top-quality FINRA Arbitration attorneys in your corner, fighting as hard as you would to make sure you get justice.
What Cases can a FINRA Arbitration lawyer handle?
Most brokers and brokerage firms are part of FINRA, which means that they have to participate in FINRA Arbitration if a claim is filed. Generally, you can file claims for actions up to six years in the past, but this can vary depending on the details of your situation. Claims cover issues like:
Unauthorized trading (investments bought and/or sold without your permission)
Inappropriate investments for your particular circumstances
Excessive trading (also called broker churn) to drive up fees
False statements or omissions about what exactly is in or has happened to your portfolio
Excessive risk-taking without authorization
Financial and broker fraud generally
