FINRA Dispute Resolution
If you have endured substantial investment losses and are interested in learning more about dispute resolution through the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), contact a qualified investment loss lawyer.

When to Go to FINRA Arbitration
There are many different instances in which it may be appropriate to move forward with FINRA arbitration. The one thing most of these cases have in common is that the financial advisor, stockbroker, or brokerage firm has wronged the investor in some way. This could include:
- Failure to supervise
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Stockbroker misconduct
- Unauthorized trading
- Selling away
- Lack of portfolio diversification
- Ponzi schemes
These are just a few examples in which an investor may be able to recover their losses in FINRA arbitration. You can discuss the individual details of your case with your stock loss lawyer to learn more about whether you have grounds for restitution.
What to Expect If You Move Forward with FINRA Arbitration
FINRA arbitration involves having your case heard by a panel of arbitrators. If your losses amount to less than $100,000, one arbitrator will hear your case. If they amount to $100,000 or more, a panel of three arbitrators will hear your case.
Arbitration is similar to court proceedings with several exceptions. For example, once a decision has been reached, it is not eligible for appeal. If you brought your case to court you could appeal the decision.
However, despite the fact that arbitration does not leave room for an appeal, many wronged investors find it to be a more attractive option given the fact that the entire process from start to finish can be resolved in as little as eighteen months.
Once a decision has been made, if the arbitrators determine you should be repaid, the liable party will then be ordered to compensate you accordingly within thirty days of the decision.
