Arbitration And Litigation

FINRA Securities Arbitration and Litigation in the Courts

A core part of our practice at Hertz Schram PC, involves defense of brokers and brokerage firms in arbitration before FINRA arbitration panels, as well as in the court system. For more than 30 years, our Detroit securities litigation lawyers have successfully defended industry professionals in virtually every major FINRA forum, and have particularly strong experience arbitrating matters in Texas, Florida and New York, as well as in Michigan and surrounding Midwestern states.

Our attorneys maintain membership in SIFMA (Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association), as well as close ties to colleagues in BISA (Bank Insurance and Securities Association), and PIABA (Public Investors Arbitration Bar Association), many of whom we have faced in arbitration. Our knowledge and understanding of ongoing and developing trends in FINRA arbitration, from ongoing rule changes and their impact on the industry to panelist sentiment, is unmatched in the legal community. As former brokers, prosecutors, compliance officers and general counsel, as well as present mediators, expert witnesses and arbitrators ourselves, the nationwide securities arbitration lawyers at Hertz Schram PC, understand what goes into a panel's decision-making, and how the best outcomes are achieved. FINRA arbitration, a process that many may consider murky and difficult to navigate, has been home to our attorneys since the Shearson/American Express, Inc. v. McMahon decision in 1987 brought securities matters into this forum.

Representing clients in Michigan, Florida, Texas and New York.
