We are Investor Advocates.

Gana Weinstein LLP represents investors nationally in FINRA arbitrations. Our goal is to recover investment losses for our clients from broker-dealers and financial advisors. Our clients are commonly the victims of securities fraud, unsuitable investment strategies, misrepresentations, and improper account management. Our attorneys can help you determine if securities losses were the result of unfair or unlawful practices in the brokerage industry.

Claims brought on behalf of clients include suitability, churning, unauthorized trading, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, and negligent misrepresentation. However, securities fraud can take many forms and may not be easily discoverable. Some advisors place clients in high risk, high commission products without adequately disclosing the risks of those products to their clients. Many of these investment products can drain client accounts, are often illiquid, and can decimate retirement planning.

Many victims of securities fraud do not come forward for various reasons including blaming themselves for being fooled by a trusted advisor. The truth is you are not alone and are probably only one of many people the broker as deceived. Brokerage firms are required to exercise diligence in supervising their brokers.

We are here to help. Gana Weinstein LLP has successfully resolved hundreds of securities arbitrations through full evidentiary hearing or settlement. We represent individuals throughout the United States in disputes before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).

If you believe that you may have been a victim of securities fraud, our experienced attorneys will forensically evaluate your accounts for of charge to determine if you have a case. Our attorneys have analyzed thousands of accounts and investments and will be able to help answer your questions.

The FINRA Arbitration Process

Our securities attorneys have successfully resolved hundreds of securities arbitrations through verdict or settlement. We represent individuals and institutions throughout the United States in disputes before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). Claims brought on behalf of clients include suitability, churning, unauthorized trading, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, and negligent misrepresentation.

Many clients ask, what is FINRA and why do I have to arbitrate my dispute through FINRA? Arbitration in general is a dispute resolution forum that serves as an alternative to traditional litigation that takes place in a court room. An arbitration proceeding is just as binding on the merits of a case as if the matter were brought in court. However, an appeal from an arbitration decision is more limited than an appeal of a judicial ruling.

FINRA runs the arbitration forum for the entire brokerage industry in the United States. FINRA provides a streamlined processes and procedures for resolving customer disputes. FINRA also sets standards of care and industry practices that its members and brokers must adhere too. Our investment attorneys can provide you with more information concerning FINRA arbitration.
