Today’s investment products and strategies are so complicated and obscure that they can confound even the most sophisticated litigators. Moreover, cases involving financial misconduct by brokers generally can’t be brought in court. They must instead be pursued through arbitration under the auspices of the brokerage industry’s self-regulatory organization, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. Most lawyers have little or no familiarity with FINRA’s arcane rules, procedures, and customs.
At McCarthy, Lebit, Crystal & Liffman, the attorneys in our Stockmarketloss group are battle-hardened and field-trained. We spend virtually all of our time representing victims of investment negligence and fraud, and our current work is informed by years of experience representing major securities broker-dealers. Combined, we have nearly 50 years of experience in this field. We have a comprehensive understanding of the laws pertaining to sales of both pure securities investments and hybrid insurance/securities products like variable annuities and variable life insurance policies. We can effectively handle even the most complex investment disputes.
