Do you have the right to file a securities arbitration claim?
Virtually any person who has invested in stocks, bonds, or mutual funds may be able to assert this right if they have suffered investment losses caused by any violation of FINRA rules, or state or federal securities laws.
As a general rule, a claim will be valid if it involves:
- Unsuitable investments
- Misrepresented investments
- Excessive or unauthorized trading
- Outright fraud
Within the securities industry, arbitration is the most common means for resolving disputes. In fact, it is often required in the majority of investor-brokerage firm agreements. Arbitration aims to reach a settlement while avoiding extensive litigation and courtroom battles.
How can you get started?
The path to an arbitration hearing starts when you file a “Statement of Claim”, which must include specific information about the dispute, the facts of the case, and what remedies you are seeking. The respondent (the broker or advisor upon whom this claim is served) will have the opportunity to file a response and provide defenses to the securities arbitration claim.
Why You Need a Port St. Lucie Securities Arbitration Lawyer
If you file a securities arbitration claim, you will need a great deal of financial and legal expertise on your side.
While it is not required by law that you hire an attorney, a skilled attorney can be crucial in any securities arbitration claim. For one thing, you can expect to go up against an experienced team of lawyers trying to thwart your claim. It is likely that you will face cross-examination, something for which an attorney can help you prepare.
An experienced attorney can also cross-examine the respondents’ witnesses effectively. A securities arbitration attorney can also be of benefit when selecting witnesses to testify at the hearing. An experienced lawyer can point out any potential advantage or pitfall of having a particular person testify. From understanding your full legal rights to effectively collecting and presenting evidence, an attorney’s knowledge is irreplaceable.
