When you lose money on the stock market due to fraud or misconduct, you may be able to get those losses back with the assistance of a respected securities arbitration attorney.
It is not uncommon to lose money through investments or the stock market, but if your losses were caused due to stockbroker negligence, misconduct, or fraud of any kind, you can seek recovery of these losses in arbitration. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) is responsible for overseeing cases of financial advisor or brokerage firm misconduct, and may be willing to hear your case.
At Wolper Law Firm, your qualified securities arbitration lawyer is prepared to fight for full financial recovery on your behalf. We have zero tolerance for securities fraud and will do everything possible to ensure that the party responsible for your losses is compelled to pay you restitution for what they put you through.
What is Securities Arbitration?
Securities arbitration is the opportunity that wronged investors have to hold their negligent or fraudulent financial advisors, brokers, and firms accountable for their investment losses. FINRA is responsible for overseeing these types of cases and will have a panel of arbitrators hear your case after reviewing your complaint.
If your losses were less than $100,000, your case will be heard by just one arbitrator, but if they exceeded $100,000, a panel of three arbitrators will be assigned to your case. You can think of securities arbitration the same way you might think of court in that both parties will have the chance to present their case.
You will have the opportunity to provide evidence to support that your broker is liable for your losses, and the broker and their firm will likely deny the claims or try to settle before a decision can be made. Your securities arbitration lawyer will advise you accordingly, depending on the circumstances of your case.
When to Seek Financial Recovery Through FINRA Arbitration
But how will you know when initiating a FINRA arbitration complaint is the right thing to do? There are countless ways a financial advisor can take advantage of an unknowing investor, but some of the most common types of securities fraud include:
- Making unsuitable recommendations
- Ponzi schemes
- Late-day trading
- Stockbroker negligence
- Foreign currency fraud
- Unauthorized trading
- Hedge fund fraud
- High-yield investment fraud
- Selling away
- Pyramid schemes
- Advance fee schemes
These are just a couple of the most common types of securities violations investors can fall victim to. If you notice unauthorized trades in your accounts, transactions you don’t recognize or understand, or have suddenly suffered unexplained losses, it may be in your best interests to discuss your concerns with an investment loss lawyer.
