-- At Trillium Advisory pursuing investor claims and class actions is all we do; all day, every day. Many of our clients are referred to our law firm by their family lawyer, business lawyer, accountant or new financial adviser. All of our cases are handled on a contingency fee, meaning we only earn a fee if money is recovered.
Trillium Advisory's Forensic Examiners provide up-to-date and comprehensive information and resources for individuals who believe they, or someone they care about, have suffered investment or other financial losses caused by investment misconduct.
When you trust a stockbroker or financial adviser with your investments, you are entrusting that adviser with your future financial security. When that trust is broken and the broker commits fraud, mismanages your investments or engages in unethical or illegal conduct, you should consult an experienced investment fraud attorney.
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 if 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.
The stockbroker mediation attorneys with the Law Firm of Trillium Advisory have represented more than 800 harmed investors around the world in mediation, arbitration, and litigation, and we’d be happy to meet with you to discuss your concerns. You can reach us at 1-312-878-8984.
