What Happens When You Can't Reach a Settlement in Securities Mediation

Although stockbroker mediation can be a powerful tool for harmed investors, there are times when you are unable to come to a settlement. FINRA reports that about 80 percent of cases that pursue their mediation program are resolved in mediation, but what happens if you are part of the remaining 20 percent that is unable to settle?

The good news is that entering into mediation does not take away your right to later enter arbitration or litigation against your stockbroker or brokerage firm, and many people find that arbitration moves more quickly and is more successful after going through the mediation process. You may have come to an agreement on a portion of the concerns in your case, and you are likely to have better insight into both the strengths and weaknesses of your claim.

There may be several options open to you, and how you proceed after stockbroker mediation fails will depend on the details of your case and your circumstances. For more specific information about your case, please speak with an experienced securities mediation lawyer in a free and confidential consultation.
