Mika Meyers, PLC has been representing investors in disputes with their stock brokers and financial advisers for more than two decades. Common claims that we bring on behalf of investors include claims for unsuitable investments, excessive trading, unauthorized trading, selling away, negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, Ponzi scheme losses, investment fraud, and violations of Federal and State securities laws.
A large portion of our practice involves representing investors in arbitration proceedings administered by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, also known as FINRA. Arbitration is similar to litigation, but rather than a judge or jury deciding your case, the decision is made by an arbitrator or panel of arbitrators, who are often licensed attorneys. In addition, the procedural and evidentiary rules are more relaxed in arbitration than they are in court.
U.S. News has rated Mika Meyers as a “Tier 1″ firm in the area of securities litigation, and our team includes attorneys recognized as “Best Lawyers in America” and “Super Lawyers.”
