Recovering Losses with Finra Arbitration
Investors who have suffered losses due to the negligence or misconduct of a financial advisor have the right to seek compensation. One of the most common ways to do this is through FINRA arbitration.
- FINRA arbitration is a dispute resolution process that is quicker and typically less costly than traditional litigation. It involves a panel of impartial arbitrators who review the evidence and make a binding decision.
- Investors can file a claim with FINRA within six years of the event or occurrence giving rise to the claim. This time limit is typically stricter than those imposed by the courts.
- Investors can seek damages for a variety of losses, including investment losses, lost opportunity costs, and in some cases, punitive damages.
If you have suffered financial losses due to the actions of a financial advisor, it is recommended to consult with an experienced securities arbitration lawyer. They can guide you through the process and help you recover your losses.
