The securities and commodities industries are highly regulated, and the complex laws governing them require the services of experienced attorneys. When a dispute arises between an investor and a broker, the parties are generally required to attempt resolution of their dispute with one of several regulatory organizations, including FINRA (formerly the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD) and the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE)), or the National Futures Association (NFA). Cases may also be heard before the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and JAMS.
