FINRA Arbitration Attorney

We handle a variety of matters across the U.S. in the financial industry space. Indeed, one of our partners, Josh Iacuone, is a licensed FINRA arbitration attorney. We have taken on and defeated the big firms like Goldman Sachs, Citi, BBVA, Morgan Stanley, and UBS.

We transition teams to new firms, handle TROs, fight off non-competes and non-solicits, ensure that the broker recruiting protocol is followed (for signatories), and defend against promissory note enforcement. In addition, our FINRA arbitration attorney also helps financial advisors, branch managers, RIAs and financial executives with severance, regulatory issues, letters of education and FINRA investigations.


“When it came time to sell our company, I needed an attorney experienced in liquidity events who also had a reputation as a tough litigator, in case the sale had to be resolved in the courtroom.”

“I did my due diligence and Rogge came highly recommended. Entrepreneurs trust Rogge.”

—Angela Calvert

“Thank you for your advice and assistance on a number of matters over the years.  Your experience in California, your knowledge of FINRA and your connections in the financial industry helped me successfully resolve my ADA dispute, which was seriously compromising my health.   While I understand not all of your clients rely on you to fight for them when their health is on the line, your genuine concern for me as a person, literally saved my life.  You were always responsive, regardless of your schedule and your work ethic is amazing.  Your tenacity and skills during mediation and arbitration makes you particularly effective.  I am eternally grateful!”
