Iowa Securities Attorneys

Though Fitapelli Kurta is headquartered in Manhattan, our experienced securities attorneys are licensed to practice in Iowa, whether through the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) or by association with counsel in the state. Keep in mind that most securities claims are not adjudicated in court but rather through binding arbitration before FINRA. This is where we excel.

Investor Protection in Iowa

Investors in Iowa are granted numerous protections by the Iowa Uniform Securities Act, which empowers Iowans to pursue legal claims against brokers, advisors, and firms who defraud them or otherwise wrongfully cause a loss of funds.

Stockbrokers and financial advisors in Iowa are regulated by the Iowa Securities & Regulated Industries Bureau, which enforces the Iowa Uniform Securities Act. Its powers include the issuance of subpoenas, the ability to take statements under oath, and the ability to compel production of records and books. However, the Iowa Securities & Regulated Industries Bureau is not able to represent investors in private arbitrations and/or lawsuits. Only private securities lawyers can do this. As such, it is essential that investors with complaints reach out to a qualified attorney.
