Representative Engagements


Our attorneys are nationally recognized by their clients, peers, adversaries and securities industry regulators for their experience and expertise in securities arbitration at FINRA and other self-regulatory forums, and in mediation and other alternative dispute resolution forums. 

In addition to successfully arguing the seminal United States Supreme Court cases that established securities arbitration as the primary forum for investor disputes, Murphy & McGonigle attorneys have decades of experience representing most of the major investment banks and broker-dealers and have arbitrated -- through full hearing -- hundreds of securities arbitrations throughout the United States involving complex sales practice, trading, banking, employment, operational and other matters, with damage claims as large as one billion dollars.
