Why Do You Need To Work With an Established Buffalo FINRA Law Firm If You Suffered Investor Losses?
These days, when investors have a dispute with their broker-dealers over investment losses they are required to bring their securities to claim to Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitration. This is made mandatory by the pre-dispute arbitration clause that they were asked to sign when first agreeing to work with the financial firm.
Because of this, it is important that you are represented by experienced FINRA attorneys that have fought for investors through this particular forum and have a record of securing successful outcomes. Not only have Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas won up to seven-figure awards in arbitration for our clients, but we’ve also helped investors obtain damages through litigation and mediation. More than 90% of the investors we have represented have received full or partial financial recovery.
If you are considering trying to pursue your investment loss claim without skilled securities lawyers helping you, please reconsider. This would be like performing an appendectomy on yourself.
Even if you think your broker-dealer is on your side, once you start making allegations of broker misconduct or negligence, that stops being the case and you become the opposition. Also, consider that they have their own attorneys protecting their interests. All the more reason why you should have your own securities law team advocating for you.
How Does The Arbitration Process Work?
Like going to court, both parties involved will submit pleadings with their claims or defenses. Both sides are entitled to discovery to better gather evidence to make their case. A hearing will then take place where evidence is presented and witnesses are examined and cross-examined.
Unlike courts, arbitrators and not a jury will rule on your case. Even more importantly, unlike court, in Financial Industry Regulatory Authority arbitration you will have virtually no opportunity to appeal if the decision is not in your favor. These are even more reasons why you want savvy FINRA attorneys representing you.
