Employment Litigation Attorney
Representing Employees in the Investment Industry
Napoli Bern Ripka Shkolnik, LLP represents individual employees in the securities industry who have been wrongfully terminated or retaliated against or who have been involved in compensation disputes. Our clients include registered representatives, brokers, futures traders, hedge fund traders and trading assistants. Those who are employed in the securities industry need a particular brand of representation for a number of reasons.
While employment law is regulated across the board, an average employment attorney may not be intensely familiar with the securities industry like Napoli Bern Ripka Shkolnik, LLP. Our firm is one of the nation's leaders in securities arbitration, so we have an intimate understanding of the industry that many other employment law attorneys may not have. Our attorneys have more than 150 years of collective legal experience and have recovered more than $3 billion in settlements and awards for injured and wronged clients across the United States.
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has a program that has been in place since August of 2011, offering specific protections and rewards to whistleblowers. The SEC was given the authority to reward whistleblowers under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. FINRA, the SEC and other regulatory agencies cannot be everywhere at once, and they rely upon citizens to step forward if they witness or have information regarding securities fraud. This includes employees of the securities industry.
If you work at a brokerage firm and have information of churning, unsuitable or unauthorized trading or any other form of negligence or wrongdoing, an attorney at Napoli Bern Ripka Shkolnik, LLP can talk to you about your options in coming forward and reporting the matter. Our firm can also help you if you have been demoted, fired or otherwise retaliated against by your employer for reporting, threatening to report or refusing to participate in illegal or wrongful conduct. You can learn more about the SEC Office of the Whistleblower by visiting their website at http://www.sec.gov/whistleblower.
