Maine Securities Attorneys

Although the securities and investment fraud law firm Fitapelli Kurta is headquartered in Manhattan, we are licensed to practice in Maine through two methods: through the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) or by association with local counsel.

Most securities complaints are not decided in court, but rather in binding arbitration with a FINRA panel. This is where we excel.

If you have lost money investing with a Maine broker or financial investor, call 877-238-4175 for a free consultation. You may be able to collect lost funds.

Maine Investor Protections

Maine investors are protected by the Maine Uniform Securities Act, which allows investors to pursue legal action against brokers and financial advisers who have committed fraud or otherwise wrongfully caused the loss of funds.

The Maine Uniform Securities Act is enforced by the Maine Office of Securities, which provides a wealth of resources for investors. However, the Maine Office of Securities cannot represent investors in private arbitration. Only a private securities attorney can do that. Nor is the Maine Office of Securities able to compel the return of funds to an investor — only a court can do that.

This is why it is crucial that aggrieved investors retain an experienced securities attorney to pursue the recovery of lost money.

Why Fitapelli Kurta?

Fitapelli Kurta is different. Our attorneys have previously practiced with large national law firms, defending brokers and investment banks against investor claims. Now all of our attorneys work exclusively for the investor: they cannot and will not defend brokers or financial advisers. They deploy their years of inside knowledge to the investor’s advantage.

Fitapelli Kurta works on contingency: we only get paid if you do. Consequently we only accept cases we are confident will prevail from investors we believe in.

Fitapelli Kurta has a track record of success. Though we cannot guarantee results, we have successfully recovered millions of dollars in lost funds for investors we represent. Our attorneys are regularly quoted in trade publications and national media, including ABC News and the Wall Street Journal, and have won several industry awards, including the Avvo Client’s Choice Award for Arbitration.

In short: we know what we’re doing, and we do it well.
