Protecting yourself from litigious action is a time consuming and expensive activity. Thousands of hours a year are spent industry wide creating and implementing various best practice solutions, including and certainly not limited to: disclosure statements, disclaimers, rules, laws, regulations, policies, procedures, employee training and other such items.
Not one rule or regulation or policy will keep someone from suing you. It still comes down to as it always does, how much pain can you take? Can you afford to defend a lawsuit? Attorneys are charging as much as $600-$1000 an hour. The average preparatory time is nearly 12 hours if you are not organized. Do the math. You haven’t even gone to court yet or to mediation/arbitration. The average unprepared registered rep will spend 1000 hours of his own time dealing with and preparing for his eventual arbitration. What do you earn an hour? Have you looked? $100 an hour? $500 an hour? $1000 an hour? You are the only one who is able to see the potential impact this may have on your life.

"In 2009, Financial Advisors Legal Association supported me in a $4 million arbitration case. This was an extremely complex case associated with a Tenant-in-Common property sale, which involved my broker dealer, multiple attorneys and due diligence officers, third party legal and due diligence parties, and voluminous case files. FA Legal engaged an attorney for my case who was very professional and thorough, who I would recommend for any representative in a similar situation. Through a group effort coordinated by FA Legal’s attorney, the case came to a satisfactory conclusion with no findings against the broker dealer or the financial representative. I believe that the result may have been less optimal without the professional involvement of FA Legal and their attorney. I would highly recommend both for litigation protection or defense for a representative desiring professional representation."Dr. Gary Ackerman
