Representing Kentucky Investors’ Rights In Arbitration
Mandatory arbitration clauses are common in investor-broker contracts. The upside is that it can prevent costly, time-consuming litigation. The downside is that investors do not have the option of a trial before a judge.
If you are an investor who has found yourself involved in a dispute with your broker-dealer, the time has come to contact Valenti Hanley PLLC. Our securities law attorneys are well-versed in all issues related to arbitration through the Financial Industry Regulatory Agency (FINRA). We serve clients throughout Kentucky, Colorado and Florida.
Mediation And Arbitration: What To Know
In mediation, all parties sit down with a neutral mediator who facilitates discussions. Ideally, the parties arrive at a mutually satisfactory resolution without requiring litigation. Similarly, in arbitration, the parties appear before an arbitrator who hears all sides and issues a final, binding decision. Brokers prefer mediation and arbitration because they are private, not public, preventing unfavorable publicity, and allow greater control over the outcome.
