Arbitration Guidance

You have the right to understand the investments recommended to you. Our legal team has experience recovering investment losses from stockbrokers and brokerage houses through direct negotiation and mediation and - when necessary - arbitration and litigation. We provide thorough arbitration advocacy to ensure our clients achieve their goals.

Stockbrokers, financial planners and insurance agents are prohibited from:

  • Recommending unsuitable stocks or mutual funds
  • Engaging in undue buying and selling of stocks or mutual funds (known as churning)
  • Ignoring your instructions
  • Buying or selling stocks or funds without your authority or permission

Additionally, other deceptive practices can create investment losses. We are committed to helping clients make a claim with the Financial Regulatory Authority (FINRA) to recover the lost money, attorney fees and other costs.
