Securities Arbitration & Litigation
Client financial losses stem from many sources. Sometimes, broker-dealers and investment advisers sell securities that generate high fees that are inappropriate for clients. Some clients are sold novel and exotic investment products that are only appropriate for a small group of sophisticated investors willing to take excessive risk. Other clients come to us with account statements and trading activity so voluminous and complex that the client cannot even tell how much money they have lost. Many times these indecipherable account statements are set up to cover up excessive trading activity and risk.
Palmieri & Co., can help clients determine if their investment losses were the result of normal market forces or misconduct by Wall Street. When clients first retain us, many of them have suffered substantial losses to their portfolios that they cannot understand. Our securities specialists can help recoup those losses through a detailed and forensic approach to understanding the losses and by applying the appropriate law to explain those losses.
Palmieri & Co., has successfully resolved hundreds of securities arbitrations through verdict or settlement. We represent individuals and institutions both nationally and internationally in disputes before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and previously before its predecessor organizations, the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD) and the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). Claims brought on behalf of clients include suitability, churning, unauthorized trading, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, and negligent misrepresentation.
