New York Securities Attorneys

The securities and investment fraud law firm Fitapelli Kurta is based in Manhattan, where we represent investors nationally – whether by association with local counsel or through the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).

Most securities claims are not adjudicated in court. Rather they are heard in binding arbitration before a FINRA panel. This is our specialty.

New York Investor Protections

New York investors are protected by the Office of the Attorney General’s Investor Protection Bureau, which enforces the New York General Business Law Article 23-A, also known as the Martin Act.

The Martin Act grants the Attorney General wide latitude to investigate suspected fraud and take action against brokers, adviser, and broker-dealers suspected of misconduct.

The Bureau requires securities salespersons and firms to register with the Attorney General’s office, and offers a variety of educational resources for investors and brokers alike.

However, the Investor Protection Bureau cannot represent investors in FINRA arbitration, where most securities claims are adjudicated. Only private securities attorneys can do this.

Why Fitapelli Kurta?

Fitapelli Kurta has years of experience on both sides of the table. Our attorneys used to work for large national law firms, defending broker-dealers and investment banks against investor claims. Today we work exclusively on behalf of investors, though we have not forgotten what we learned working for the “enemy.”

Fitapelli Kurta only gets paid if you do. Our attorneys work on contingency, and only collects a fee for clients who recover damages.

Fitapelli Kurta has a record of success. Though we cannot guarantee a positive outcome, we can point to the millions of dollars we have recovered for our clients. Our founding partners are both SuperLawyers®, and our attorneys are regularly quoted in national media. Fitapelli Kurta is received industry honors including the the Avvo Client’s Choice Award for Arbitration and a “Preeminent” rating by Martindale-Hubbell.
