Godbout Law’s attorneys handle securities litigation and arbitration matters throughout Massachusetts. Most of these claims are handled in arbitrations before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). The Firm’s securities litigation practice involves arbitrations regarding investment advisors, financial planners, broker/dealers and registered representatives and investors. The securities arbitration process can be difficult to maneuver without experienced counsel and experts, particularly since attorneys fees are typically recoverable for the prevailing party and punitive damages may be part of the claim.
Godbout Law’s attorneys have handled consumer claims involving allegations surrounding investment suitability, fraud, churning, failure to supervise, unauthorized trading, failure to execute, improper licensure, and a host of statutory claims.
Godbout Law’s attorneys also have experience representing clients in industry disputes including claims for improper solicitation, recovery of promissory notes from departing brokers and various other employment related disputes.
