Hawaii Securities Attorneys

Our attorneys are able to represent investors in Hawaii 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 what we do.

How are Hawaii Investors Protected?

Investors in the State of Hawaii are protected by a variety of securities laws and regulations, including the Hawaii Uniform Securities Act. These laws, as well as state and federal securities law – not to mention FINRA rules – give Hawaii investors the right to pursue claims against financial advisers and brokers who have engaged in misconduct.

The Hawaii Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs enforces Hawaii securities law by overseeing stockbrokers and investment advisers in the state. However, the Hawaii Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs cannot represent investors in lawsuits or private arbitrations. Furthermore, the Hawaii Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs is not concerned with recovering an investor;s losses. However, a securities attorney is.

Why are We the Right Attorneys?

Fitapelli Kurta gets results. Though we cannot make guarantees, our securities attorneys have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of aggrieved investors in Hawaii and elsewhere. We have a demonstrated record of success. Both of our founding attorneys are SuperLawyers®, and Fitapelli Kurta has received several industry honors: the Avvo Client’s Choice Award for Arbitration, for example, and a “Preeminent” rating by Martindale-Hubbell.

Fitapelli Kurta is different. Our attorneys offer insider expertise. Both founding partners have years of experience defending brokerage and advisory firms against investor claims. Now, every securities attorney in our firm works exclusively for investors. We put our years of experience working for the "enemy" to work for you.

Fitapelli Kurta only gets paid if you do. Our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which means they only take a fee if their clients collect lost money. We offer free consultations by telephone in Hawaii and across the country.

What Should You do?

If you, or someone you know, have complaints regarding a stockbroker or investment adviser in Hawaii, you may be entitled to recover your losses. There is limited time to file a claim, however, so do not wait. Call us today.
