Securities arbitration is a solution for resolving disputes between investors and financial advisors or brokerage firms without going to court. Securities arbitration is a form of dispute resolution where a neutral arbitrator or panel hears evidence from both parties and then makes a binding decision.

Advantages of Securities Arbitration

  • Faster Resolution

    Arbitration often leads to a quicker resolution compared to traditional litigation, which can take years to move through the court system.

  • Lower Costs

    While there are costs associated with arbitration, they are generally lower than the expenses incurred during a court case.

  • Confidentiality

    Arbitration proceedings are private, and the details of the case and the final decision are not made public, unlike court cases.

  • Expertise

    Arbitrators in securities arbitration usually have expertise in securities law and financial markets, offering a more informed decision-making process regarding specialized financial disputes.

  • Finality

    The arbitrator’s decision is typically final and binding, with very limited grounds for appeal. This finality can provide closure to both parties.

How It Works

  • Initiation

    The process begins when the investor files an arbitration claim with a regulatory body such as the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) in the United States, detailing the dispute and the desired resolution.

  • Selection of Arbitrators

    Both parties have a say in selecting the arbitrators from a list provided by the arbitration forum. The number of arbitrators can vary, but a panel typically consists of one or three arbitrators.

  • Hearing

    During the arbitration hearing, both sides present evidence, call witnesses, and make arguments similar to a court trial, but the procedures are less formal.

  • Decision

    After the hearing, the arbitrators deliberate and issue a decision, known as an award. This award is enforceable in court if necessary.

F.A.Q.s

(Frequently Asked Questions)

Securities arbitration is a legal process used to resolve disputes between investors and brokers or brokerage firms. It’s an alternative to court litigation, where a neutral arbitrator or panel decides the outcome of a dispute based on the evidence presented.

Unlike litigation, which takes place in a courtroom and is subject to a judge or jury’s decision, arbitration is a more private and streamlined process. It typically resolves disputes faster and at a lower cost than traditional court proceedings.

In the United States, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) oversees most securities arbitrations. FINRA sets the rules, manages the arbitration process, and provides arbitrators who are knowledgeable in securities law and industry practices.

You should consider securities arbitration if you have a dispute with your broker or brokerage firm involving investment misconduct, such as unauthorized trading, misrepresentation, omission of facts, or unsuitable investment recommendations.

To initiate securities arbitration, you or your attorney must file a statement of claim with FINRA, detailing the dispute and the relief sought. The broker or firm then has an opportunity to respond.

The arbitration process involves pre-hearing conferences, discovery (exchange of documents and evidence), and a hearing where both parties present their case. After the hearing, the arbitrators deliberate and issue a written decision, known as an award.

Yes, the arbitrator’s decision is binding and final, with very limited opportunities for appeal. If the award is in your favor, the broker or firm is typically required to pay within 30 days.

Absolutely. It’s highly recommended to have a lawyer experienced in securities law represent you in arbitration. Our attorneis here at Calvo Law can help you prepare your case, represent you during hearings, and navigate the complexities of securities law.

The duration of securities arbitration can vary, but it generally takes between 12 to 18 months from filing the claim to receiving a decision.

Costs can include filing fees, hearing fees, and attorneys’ fees. Filing and hearing fees are based on the amount of the claim and are outlined by FINRA. Many attorneys work on a contingency basis, where they receive a percentage of the award if successful.
