Meyer Wilson is proud to announce that Courtney Werning has been appointed to FINRA’s National Arbitration and Mediation Committee (“NAMC”). NAMC is comprised of 13 members, appointed by FINRA, from across the country who have the authority to recommend rules, regulations, procedures and amendments relating to arbitration, mediation, and other dispute resolution matters to the FINRA Board.
This appointment comes as no surprise to those familiar with her leadership in the investor protection and claims field, both as a practitioner representing harmed investors and as a member of the Board of Directors of the Public Investors Arbitration Bar Association.
Courtney devotes her practice to the representation of investors who have claims against their financial professionals, investment advisers, and brokerage firms. Her practice includes litigation in state and appellate courts and various alternative dispute resolution forums. She has tried arbitrations to verdict before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, the National Futures Association, and the American Arbitration Association. Courtney’s recent civil cases and arbitrations have involved allegations related to unsuitable investment strategies, fraud and misrepresentation, Ponzi schemes, legal malpractice, elder financial abuse, securities act claims, and securities class actions.
Courtney’s appointment to the National Arbitration and Mediation Committee is a testament to her commitment to excellence and her significant impact in the industry. We look forward to the positive impact she will undoubtedly bring to NAMC while continuing to advocate for every day investors.
