A group arbitration can be a great way to benefit from economies of scale, consistent testimony regarding a broker's conduct, and help to leverage a settlement. However, they come with their own challenges and perils for the unwary. A panel of attorneys who have experience bringing group claims will explain their strategies, organization techniques, relevant FINRA rules, and the traps to avoid in group claims ranging from settlement discussions and authority, conflicts and waivers, logistics and schedules, to presenting at hearing with more than one Claimant. Group claims can be a great tool, but they require planning and forethought to do them well; learn from the past successes and failures of your colleagues in this session.
