Common Stockbroker Mediation Questions

Who chooses the mediator when a claim is handled in securities mediation through FINRA?

If you choose mediation to settle a dispute then you maintain some control over who the mediator is, however, so does the other party. The mediator has to be a neutral, third party.

What happens if I can't reach a settlement in securities mediation?

While most disputes between investors and their brokers are settled during mediation, this process is sometimes unsuccessful in coming to a resolution. In the event that this happens, arbitration can be pursued.

[

If my broker dispute is handled in mediation, will the decision be considered binding?

Mediation, unlike arbitration, is non-binding. For this reason, brokerage firms often don’t pay the full value of what they owe the claimant, making arbitration necessary in many cases.
