200+ FINRA Arbitrations

Greenberg Traurig's Securities Litigation team has handled almost 250 FINRA Arbitrations for our top-tier financial services clients since 2013.

Greenberg Traurig's Securities Litigation Practice is one of the largest in the United States. We have been lead defense counsel in hundreds of securities class actions, derivative actions, and investigations and enforcement actions by the SEC, FINRA, and state regulators, including some of the largest, most complex, and highly publicized regulatory actions and securities fraud cases filed in recent times. We have also defended the largest broker-dealers on Wall Street in high stakes customer and industry arbitrations; our broker-dealer lawyers have collectively tried to final award well over a thousand cases. With offices across the United States and internationally, our team assists clients in virtually every major commercial and banking center near and far. Our securities litigators work closely with attorneys in related practice disciplines throughout the firm, such as corporate & securities, white collar defense & special investigations, labor & employment, and corporate governance & compliance, to provide our clients with a strategic portfolio of counseling and defense services. GT’s broad governmental affairs practice – along with the many former federal and state prosecutors and former SEC, FINRA and state regulatory attorneys who practice at GT – enables us to offer clients advice based not only on legal acumen but also on a thorough understanding of the government process. Our multidisciplinary approach enables us to formulate creative defense strategies and limit litigation risk.

As approved panel counsel for the major D&O insurance carriers, we regularly defend securities class actions, shareholder derivative actions, actions arising out of mergers and acquisitions, and regulatory enforcement actions. We are one of very few firms in the nation whose lawyers have tried a securities class action to a successful defense verdict.
