FINRA Censures and Fines Merrill Lynch

Samuels Yoelin Kantor LLP

(September 24) The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) has censured and fined Merrill Lynch $500,000 for failing to file some 650 required reports, and failing to acknowledge nearly 300 customer complaints, between 2005 and 2011.

As the largest independent regulatory agency for securities firms operating in the United States, FINRA protects investors and maintains the integrity of the financial market. The action did not allege that any individual investor had been harmed, but that Merrill Lynch’s reporting failures undermined consumers’ ability to fairly choose from among brokers. Merrill Lynch did not admit wrongdoing.

Client Reviews

Thank you for your most kind and efficient treatment during my dilemma.


Darlene was so helpful in this matter, I had been trying for months to get help and she came through for me . . . I would recommend her in a heartbeat.


From the first time I spoke with her about my lawsuit, to the successful conclusion, Darlene was always the support I needed.


You folks put on an excellent case and we were, to say the least, extremely nervous about the outcome.
