If you’ve taken on losses due to the negligent or fraudulent practices of a financial advisor, an attorney from Meyer Wilson can help you.
Our investment fraud lawyers serving Texas have over 75 years of combined experience representing defrauded investors like yourself. We’ll guide you through the process involved with filing a complaint against an investment company in Texas and pursue full compensation for the losses you’ve incurred.
How We Can Help You File a Complaint Against a Texas Investment Company
Filing a complaint against an investment company in Texas is very different from taking someone to court. The process involves a number of different steps and rules that require the assistance of a highly experienced legal representative to navigate effectively.
At Meyer Wilson, our team has won over $350 million for defrauded investors, and we’re eager to recover damages on your behalf as well. We’ll draw on our extensive experience and knowledge to level the playing field and guide you through the following steps:
Initiating a Complaint
Filing a complaint against the investment company that you have a dispute with is the first step of the process. In your complaint, your attorney will include evidence of the fraudulent practices and how much compensation you’re seeking to obtain.
In some instances, before your case goes to arbitration, our team may attempt to reach a resolution with the offending party. This process, which is known as mediation, involves negotiating with the financial advisor’s legal representative to reach a settlement offer. Many of the cases we take on are settled during the mediation process.
That said, most cases are filed in arbitration. Whether the fate of your claim is determined during mediation or arbitration, you can count on us to protect your rights and push for maximum compensation.
When you sign a contract with a financial advisor, you agree to settle any disputes you have with them through arbitration. Such arbitration proceedings are overseen by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). During a FINRA arbitration, arbitrators from different backgrounds will hear and make a final decision on your case.
Before arbitration hearings begin, you and the respondent will participate in the ranking and selection of the arbitrators who will preside over your case. Our firm has filed countless complaints against investment companies in Texas and throughout the nation. We have experience with many arbitrators and can make sure your case is decided by a fair, impartial, and highly skilled panel of arbitrators.
The Arbitration Hearing
Once the panel of arbitrators has been selected and a hearing has been scheduled, you’ll get the chance to tell your side of the story. During the arbitration hearing, your attorney will present evidence, arguments, and expert witness testimony that speak to the fraud or other misconduct and financial losses you’ve suffered.
Your lawyer will respond to arguments made by the defense’s representative and fight for a final decision that addresses your needs. Once the hearing has come to a close, the arbitrators will make a final decision on the case. The final decision will be legally binding and determine whether or not you’ll receive damages.
