Courtney Werning, attorney in the Meyer Wilson investor claims practice group, is looking forward to presenting next week at the Annual Meeting of PIABA, an organization of attorneys who represent investors with claims against those in the securities industry. PIABA’s purpose is to promote fairness in the resolution of disputes between investors and the securities industry, to improve upon investor protection legislation, and provide education and support to attorneys who represent investors in claims against the securities industry.
Courtney has been representing investors in court and arbitration forums for the last nine years. She will be on the panel “How to Bring RIA Cases,” discussing the considerations of bringing and winning claims against registered investment advisers. Understanding the distinctions between a stockbroker and an investment adviser is critically important to determining the path necessary to take legal action in the event something goes wrong. Courtney is looking forward to sharing her knowledge and experience with the PIABA Annual Meeting attendees.
