Florida Securities Attorneys

Fitapelli Kurta’s securities attorneys represent investors in Florida in two ways: either directly through the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) or by association with local attorneys. Most securities fraud complaints are not adjudicated in court, but rather through binding arbitration with a FINRA panel. This is where Fitapelli Kurta excels.

How are Florida Investors Protected?

Investors in the State of Florida are protected by a number of securities laws and regulations, including the Florida Securities and Investor Protection Act and the Florida Securities Rules. These regulations, as well as state and federal securities law – in addition to FINRA rules – allow Florida investors to pursue monetary damages against financial advisers and brokers who have engaged in misconduct.

The Florida Division of Securities enforces Florida securities law by overseeing stockbrokers and financial advisers in the state. However, the Florida Division of Securities has no power to represent investors in lawsuits or private arbitrations – only private securities attorneys can do that. Furthermore, the Florida Division of Securities cannot enforce the return of lost funds to investors – only courts have that power. It is essential for investors to retain a skilled securities attorney to seek the recovery of lost money.
