South Florida and Nationwide Former Wall Street Attorneys Serving Investors Across the Americas, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, or FINRA, regulates the securities industry. FINRA is a regulatory organization that oversees brokerage firms and brokers. FINRA is not a government agency, but rather a private regulatory agency. When investors have disputes with brokers, these disputes are generally not heard in court, but are heard in arbitration. If investors have allegations of broker fraud or other misconduct, they can make these allegations to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). In order to directly recover monetary damages, however, investors must bring a case before a FINRA arbitration panel. FINRA arbitration offers some advantages over litigation. It is is generally less time consuming than litigation, involves no depositions and is less expensive than a court action. Grounds for appeal are very narrow. It is also private so pleadings and discovery are not in the public domain. In order to maximize any recovery, it is important to enlist the services of lawyers who can make a persuasive presentation of your position in arbitration.
