Why Is It Important That You Work With Seasoned Portland FINRA Lawyers?
The agreement you signed to work with your broker-dealer likely included a clause in which you consented to resolve any disputes through arbitration and not in court. Because of this, you want to work with a securities law firm that is knowledgeable about the rules within this forum and has a record of successful case outcomes for its clients. Arbitration is not like going to court and necessitates different theories, strategies, and litigation styles in order for a securities case to succeed.
Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas have been fighting for investors in mediation, arbitration, and litigation since 1991. Not only that, but more than 90% of those we have represented have received full or partial financial recovery.
Also, you should know that the ruling issued by the FINRA arbitration panel that will hear your investment fraud case will likely be final, whether the outcome is in your favor or not, and you will virtually have no ability to make an appeal. This is yet another reason why working with skilled Oregon FINRA lawsuit attorneys from the start is so important. You want the best results possible.
Should we decide to work together, our securities law firm will conduct a deep dive investigation into your investor losses and build a solid broker misconduct claim on your behalf. We also will represent you before the panel of arbitrators during the hearing and make sure that your legal rights are protected.
How Do You Know Whether You Have Grounds for A FINRA Lawsuit?
This can be hard to discern without the help of skilled securities lawyers. Some investor losses that happen may have nothing to do with the advice or actions of your broker. Also, typically, brokerage firms and their financial advisors are more than likely to deny wrongdoing and shift the blame away from themselves, which can be confusing and misleading even for the most sophisticated and experienced investors.
Your financial advisor may even attribute your investor losses to adverse events, such as the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, which led to economic turmoil and caused the markets to plummet. However, if your broker made unsuitable investment recommendations to you or overconcentrated your account with too many risky investments that placed you in a vulnerable position during that time so that you suffered significant losses to your portfolio, you may be able to sue them for broker fraud.
With over a century’s worth of combined experience working in securities law and the securities industry, our knowledgeable Portland FINRA investor loss lawyers can help you assess whether you were the victim of broker misconduct or negligence and how to best proceed.
