Complex securities and commodities litigation cases can put millions of dollars on the line. Scarinci Hollenbeck, LLC offers its clients a deep knowledge of complex securities litigation cases. We have experience in a wide range of financial litigation, including civil litigation, SEC regulatory litigation, enforcement matters, self-regulatory litigation, and securities class action cases.

As a broker, your business is defined by your reputation. If a customer files a false claim against you, it will result in negative information included on your publicly available BrokerCheck report, which can cast a shadow on you. Fortunately, our expungement attorneys can help you remove false and inaccurate complaints from your public brokerage record in accordance with FINRA Rule 2080.

Scarinci Hollenbeck, LLC’s expungement lawyers lead the pack in successful expungement petitions with FINRA. Our familiarity with this type of situation will make the process of removing complaints from your BrokerCheck report more efficient and effective. We strive to ensure that your brokerage career and reputation won’t be negatively affected by baseless customer complaints.

Scarinci Hollenbeck, LLC has also successfully filed expungement petitions to remove false information on BrokerCheck reports concerning a broker’s termination from a broker-dealer on the firm’s Form U5 (Uniform Termination Notice for Securities Industry Registration). Our team regularly provides our broker-dealer and investment advisor clients with U5 assistance and review.


The seasoned FINRA arbitration attorneys at Scarinci Hollenbeck, LLC have extensive experience representing firms and brokers in securities arbitration matters before FINRA.
