Florida FINRA Attorneys

From Our Tampa Securities Law Office, Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas Represent Florida Investors Against Brokerage Firms

Suffering serious investment losses, especially when caused by brokerage firm misconduct or negligence, can be devastating. You entrusted your financial advisor to take care of your money and now you’ve discovered they may have betrayed you by breaching their fiduciary duty and disregarding your best interests while leaving you to pay the price.

At Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas, our seasoned Tampa FINRA lawyers represent Florida investors in pursuing damages from brokerage firms and their financial advisors throughout the United States.

Why Do You Need Experienced Tampa FINRA Arbitration Lawyers To Represent You?

When you signed a contract to work with your broker, you very likely also agreed to a pre-dispute arbitration clause. This limits you from going after your financial advisor and their brokerage firm in court.

What you can do, however, is file a securities fraud lawsuit in arbitration, with the most likely forum being Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). Because there are specific rules and procedures that govern FINRA arbitration, it is important that you are represented by a savvy FINRA law firm that understands these rules and has experience winning investor loss cases in this type of venue.

For over 30 years, Shepherd Smith Edward and Kantas (investorlawyers.com) has been representing investors in arbitration, mediation, and litigation. This includes working with retail investors, retirees, accredited investors, high-net-worth investors, institutional investors, and others. We have won settlements and awards for thousands of clients, including against the largest brokerage firms on Wall Street.

Having skilled Florida FINRA attorneys working for you while protecting your rights will maximize your chances for financial recovery. As a matter of fact, over 90% of the investors we have represented have received a full or partial recovery for their losses.

This is not the type of legal claim that you want to pursue on your own or without trusted securities fraud attorneys by your side. Once the arbitration panel rules on your case, whatever award they render is final and you will have virtually no ability to appeal. This is yet another reason why you want your FINRA lawsuit handled properly from the start.

Representing Florida Retirees in FINRA Arbitration

Florida is known for its robust retiree communities. Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas represent many retirees and older investors in filing FINRA lawsuits against the brokerage firms that mishandled their investments or misappropriated their funds. Unfortunately, many senior investors are often unsuitably recommended or overconcentrated in investments that are too risky for them given their ages, risk tolerance levels, investment time horizons, and investing goals.
