Mississippi Securities Attorneys
Fitapelli Kurta’s seasoned securities attorneys are qualified to practice in Mississippi through the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) or by association with local counsel. Most securities claims are decided in binding arbitration before a FINRA panel rather than in a courtroom; this is where Fitapelli Kurta excels.How are Mississippi Investors Protected?
Mississippi investors are assured a series of protections by the Mississippi Securities Act and the Mississippi Secretary of State. The Secretary of State’s office is responsible for regulating the sale of securities as well as the activities of securities professionals; it works in conjunction with state and federal agencies to investigate claims of misconduct against brokers and broker-dealer firms, and to take action against those who violate Mississippi securities laws.
However, the Mississippi Secretary of State is not empowered to represent Mississippi investors in private arbitration. Only private securities lawyers can do this. Additionally, the Mississippi Secretary of State cannot compel a respondent to return lost funds to an aggrieved investor. Only courts can do this. This is why Fitapelli Kurta encourages aggrieved investors seek out and retain the services of a qualified securities attorney to pursue recovery of lost funds.What’s Next?
