We have represented parties in well over 600 securities arbitrations, and have been doing so since the virtual dawn of securities arbitration. No one knows the process, the nuances, and the law better than we do, and it is hard to image anyone who has such extensive experience.
All of our securities litigation attorneys have extensive experience in securities arbitration. One of our partners, Mark J. Astarita, has represented parties in over 600 securities arbitrations, and has prosecuted, defended, and settled claims across the country. Mr. Astarita is one of the premier securities arbitration attorneys in the country. He has the highest professional ratings in the peer and client category from Martindale-Hubbell, and has been an invited speaker on the topic at various seminars and forums. He is also the author of the popular article Introduction to Securities Arbitration, available at SECLaw.com.
Since the virtual dawn of securities arbitration in 1982, Mark Astarita has represented investors, financial professionals, brokerage firms and investment advisors helping them to resolve their disputes, either through a negotiated settlement, a mediation before a hearing, or at the securities arbitration hearing itself.
The substance of the disputes have encompassed virtually every type of securities disputes that one could possibly imagine, including misrepresentations, churning, unsuitability, unauthorized trading, failure to diversify, breach of fiduciary duty, illegal or excessive markups, selling away, control and domination, ACAT problems, research violations, margin violations, clearing broker liability, books and records violations, supervisory issues and significant others.
Our partners also represent individual investors with unique or otherwise noteworthy cases. We have represented investors involved in market manipulation cases, options trading, and Merrill Lynch research analyst cases. We have obtained full recovery in some cases, punitive damages in others, and settlement favorable to our clients for most. In one noteworthy case a New York arbitration panel awarded our clients 120% of their out-of-pocket losses, plus one million dollars in punitive damages and attorneys fees.
