What to expect during securities arbitration case review
Securities arbitration is a form of dispute resolution. A neutral arbitrator or panel of arbitrators review and analyze evidence. Then, they hand down a decision. The decision is legally binding. Because of that, many people have a lawyer review the case before moving forward.
Determine the type of claim
The securities arbitration attorney will begin by analyzing evidence to determine the type of claim. Investors take brokers into arbitration for a variety of reasons. Often, investors only realize the broker has committed misconduct or fraud but do not understand the exact nature of the claim. The attorney will classify it as churning, unsuitability, negligence, misappropriation, or another issue.
Check the broker’s history
The attorney will also check the broker’s history to see if such claims have been made in the past. While some brokers lose security licenses after convictions, others manage to continue to handle clients’ money. If the broker has a history of defrauding investors, that can bolster the case. However, even first-time offenders can be held accountable in arbitration.
Review of agreement between the broker and the client
The attorney will also review the paperwork the client signed with the broker. The agreement outlines the terms of the arbitration. This will help the attorney formulate a legal strategy. The attorney will then explain the terms to the client so everyone is on the same page.
Go over the list of potential arbitrators
Sometimes, clients request a case review after already filing arbitration paperwork. Then, the client receives a list of arbitrators for the case. The attorney can review the list to help the client strike those that are not likely to provide a positive outcome. Securities arbitration attorneys rely on years of experience when choosing arbitrators.
Discuss the legal strategy and possible outcomes
After reviewing the case, the attorney will be ready to discuss legal strategy. If the case is a good fit for arbitration, the attorney can go over possible outcomes. Also, the lawyer will request documents and other evidence and plan the case. Then, the attorney can represent the client during the arbitration. This is much like a courtroom trial, so having an attorney present is beneficial.
Undergoing a case review
If you are getting ready for arbitration, undergoing a case review should be the first step. Even if you have already filed the paperwork, contact an attorney to discuss your case. Your attorney can help you map your path forward. The lawyer will also ensure your interests are represented during the hearing.
