Securities arbitrations are trials conducted in a hearing conference room. For instance, there are typically three arbitrators instead of a judge and jury. The selection of an experienced securities lawyer is so important in these cases because FINRA is an equitable forum. To clarify, this means arbitrators can hear legal causes of action stemming from state statutes, federal securities acts, federal statutes, the common law, and FINRA’S own rules.
Banks, insurance companies, and brokerage firms know the importance of using experienced securities lawyers. Beware of arbitration consultants as they are not lawyers. Therefore, they simply do not have the training or legal experience that an attorney has to be able to handle the complex litigation you are facing. Furthermore, many arbitration consultants are violating state laws by practicing law without a license.
