SIFMA's Arbitration Committee seeks to preserve arbitration as a viable, cost-effective resolution to a traditional court lawsuit.
Prepare and file comment letters, legal analyses and other work product, and otherwise advocate industry positions on arbitration-related issues before the SEC, FINRA and other organizations (e.g., CFPB) that seek to regulate the arbitration process. Closely track and respond to legal and regulatory developments in the following key areas: discovery, expungement procedures, panel composition, non-traditional claimants, and use of class and collective waiver provisions. Advocate industry positions and provide mark-ups and commentary on arbitration-related legislation pending in Congress and in various state legislatures. Provide a forum to discuss trends and regulatory developments and to develop positions and best practices related to securities arbitration.
