A Trial Lawyer’s Perspective on FINRA Arbitrations and Expungement Proceedings (09/11/2019)

Program Number: 29117 Presenter: Matthew Kohel, Esq., George Mahaffey, Esq.

By opening a securities account with a broker-dealer, the customer has agreed to resolve disputes through binding arbitration. FINRA arbitrations bear some resemblance to litigation, but there are significant differences, such as limited discovery and motion practice, relaxed rules of evidence, and no appellate rights. These limitations emphasize the importance of persuasively presenting a client’s case, themes, and evidence at the hearing. A skilled trial lawyer should not view these limitations as a weakness but use them to his or her advantage in representing the client. The end of the arbitration is not necessarily the end of the matter for the financial services professional. The desire to expunge a negative disclosure from one’s U4 can be a confusing and difficult process that may involve multiple evidentiary hearings, but if handled by an experienced litigator, the results can be career changing as we have experienced first-hand.

Program Number: 29114 Presenter: Richard Kelley, Esq., Benjamin Klein, Esq., Deborah Meshulam, Esq.

Since the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued its groundbreaking “DAO Report” in June 2017, pulled the plug on the Munchee Inc. ICO in December 2017, initiated its “Crypto Industry Sweep” in early 2018, and subsequently commenced numerous enforcement actions, market participants have been waiting for clear guidance from the regulator on what types of digital assets are subject to SEC regulation. In April 2019, the SEC staff at last responded with its “Framework for ‘Investment Contract’ Analysis of Digital Assets,” a 13-page memorandum that describes the factors used by SEC staff for assessing whether digital assets are "investment contracts" subject to federal securities laws. Simultaneously, the SEC staff issued its first crypto-related no-action letter. Join us for a discussion of this new guidance, the no-action letter, and their implications for digital assets.
