The attorneys at Vernon Healy have decades of experience representing investors nationwide before Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitrators for securities arbitration. Investors who have suffered damages at the hands of brokerage firms must bring their complaints before FINRA and other, similar organizations for arbitration that is much like a court proceeding.
Our attorneys are thoroughly versed in these proceedings and can represent investors against brokerage firms and their attorneys in this complex process and beyond.
Christopher Vernon has also helped other investors navigate past mandatory FINRA arbitration to take their complaints to court through a precedent setting case before the Florida Supreme Court.
Mr. Vernon is qualified as an arbitrator for American Arbitration Association (AAA), FINRA (formerly, NASD and NYSE), National Futures Association (NFA), and approved arbitrator for the 20th Judicial Circuit of Florida. He has also served as an instructor for FINRA arbitrators.
In an effort to protect investors from unscrupulous and inept advisors, Mr. Vernon has brought to light gaping holes in the way FINRA records their misdeeds and negligence. These holes leave unwitting investors at continued risk from these advisors, which has led FINRA to propose changes in the way it reports and records complaints against them.
