Investors who believe that their investment accounts have been mismanaged can turn to Chicago attorney James A. McGurk to examine their options for rectifying financial losses. Mr. McGurk has significant experience handling securities arbitration, and among many pre-eminent positions has served as senior trial counsel for the Division of Enforcement at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). Above all, he understands the high stakes involved in investing in securities or futures and works diligently on behalf of all his Illinois clients who have experienced financial loss.
Securities, annuities, mutual funds and many other instruments are subject to regulation and oversight by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). When investors allege mishandling of their investment accounts, many if not most brokerage firms require that parties submit to arbitration through FINRA in order to resolve the dispute. FINRA will appoint an arbitrator who will examine each side's case and reach a binding decision.
The first step a qualified lawyer should take is to assess whether a client has a viable claim of mismanagement that can be submitted for FINRA arbitration. Mr. McGurk closely examines investment accounts for evidence of misdeeds. Where a legitimate claim exists, Mr. McGurk assists with the initiation of the arbitration process, beginning with filing a Statement of Claim. During all stages of the process, from the prehearing conference to the final decision and award, Mr. McGurk carefully monitors the proceedings and aggressively pursues every available strategy to ensure a favorable arbitration outcome.
