FINRA Arbitration Lawyer

The Law Offices of Jeffrey Pederson is a FINRA arbitration lawyer.  He focuses on the representation of investors in FINRA arbitrations.  Call 303-300-5022 for initial consultation.

Jeff Pederson has been practicing law since 1998. His primary focus has been in suits against securities broker-dealers. Prior to starting his solo practice, Mr. Pederson was with a large, AV rated firm for eight years where he represented investors in suits concerning all areas of securities fraud and mismanagement. Over the course of his career, Mr. Pederson has represented over two hundred individual investors in more than 27 different states in securities related suits.

While most FINRA suits result in settlements, FINRA arbitration results are publicly available.  The suits we handle for our investor clients result in a high level of recovery.

These investors’ suits include cases concerning mutual fund manager fraud, investment analyst fraud, stockbroker theft, brokerage fraud, failure of broker or brokerage to conduct due diligence, variable annuity fraud, 72-T fraud, hedge fund fraud, churning, unauthorized trading of investments, unauthorized use of margin, undisclosed broker conflict of interests and compensation, stockbroker mismanagement of retirement savings, and the sale of unsuitable securities. The suits have been against some of the largest securities brokerage firms in the world. Mr. Pederson has also represented victims of Ponzi scams including victims of Bernard Madoff.

In addition to representing individuals in securities suits, Mr. Pederson has assisted his clients in commercial arbitration matters, multiple cases concerning natural gas explosions, and medical device and pharmaceutical mass torts against some of the largest corporations in the world.

In all, Mr. Pederson has helped his clients, investment and non-investment, recover in excess of $48 million in judgments and settlements over the course of his career.

Suits against brokerage firms are generally required to be resolved through FINRA arbitration rather than the courts.  FINRA arbitration allows claims to be brought to conclusion more quickly and also allows us to represent investors across the United States. 

Dispute resolution statistics can be found on FINRA’s website.  Virtual hearings can be held to resolve the matter if certain prerequisites are met.  

For arbitrations in person, FINRA has at least one city in each state where an arbitration can be held.  The cities are listed on FINRA’s website.  Investors are allowed to choose the closest arbitration city to their place of residence.  

This includes Albuquerque, Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Boulder, Charlotte, Cleveland, Cheyenne, Dallas, Denver, Des Moines, Fargo, Ft. Worth, Helena, Houston, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, Milwaukee,  New York, Newark, Oklahoma City, Oakland, Omaha, Phoenix, Philadelphia, Portland, Salt Lake,  San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Rapid City, and St. Louis.
