New SEC Rules Make Public Arbitration Panel the Default Option

Samuels Yoelin Kantor LLP

Claimants lawyers and investors everywhere are celebrating a new FINRA rule that was approved yesterday by the SEC. This rule, which will become effective on September 30th, makes an all-public panel the default option for choosing the three arbitrators deciding cases involving a claim of $100,000 or more.

Robert Banks was the chair of the NAMC Rules and Procedures Subcommittee when the proposal was submitted to the SEC for consideration and approval. He was quoted this morning in an article by InvestmentNews which highlights the upcoming change.

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.
