Securities Arbitration & Litigation Attorneys
What Is Securities Arbitration?
Arbitration is a final and binding alternate dispute resolution forum to resolve disputes between investors and their financial advisers/brokerage firms. Instead of judges or juries, arbitrators decide if wrongdoing occurred and if so, how to compensate you for it. When the arbitration is over, the decisions of the arbitrators are final. If you are unhappy with the result, you cannot appeal to court to reverse the decision. The arbitrators’ decisions can only be vacated under very limited circumstances — for example, if you can prove arbitrator bias or fraud in the arbitration proceeding. Courts are reluctant to overturn arbitration awards, so it is imperative that your case is presented in the best way possible.
