Mediation of Investment Claims
Two of the most common ways to resolve a claim of financial advisor misconduct are through mediation and arbitration. While similar, the two forms of dispute resolution differ slightly. Mediation is a voluntary process that occurs when the parties agree to try to resolve the case using a trained mediator.
The mediator is a neutral, third party who helps to facilitate a settlement. However, unlike arbitration, the mediator does not reach a binding agreement with the parties. The parties have control over the case and involvement in the mediation process is completely voluntary.
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) offers both mediation and arbitration to resolve disputes among investors, brokers, and brokerage firms. It is important to discuss your case with an attorney to determine your legal options including mediation.
