MARCH 2018– Pompano Beach, FL
We recently filed an arbitration complaint against Vanderbilt Securities, the former employer of former stockbroker Mark Kaplan on behalf of an elderly couple in their mid-80’s who reside in south Florida. The suit includes a claim on behalf of the couple’s disabled adult child and alleges churning, unauthorized trading and unsuitable investments.
The claim, which will be heard by an all public FINRA arbitration panel, seeks damages of between $100,000 and $500,000.
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) is the agency that licenses and regulates stockbrokers and brokerage firms. FINRA arbitration is a process for resolving disputes over losses in investment accounts that is generally much more expedient and less costly than court litigation. In most instances, we offer representation on a contingent fee basis.
Recently Mark Kaplan was permanently barred from the securities industry by FINRA for abusing the account of a 93 year old retired clothing salesman who was experiencing a decline in his mental health.
Kaplan has several other prior customer complaints that have already been settled on his FINRA record that allege churning or excessive trading of the account.
If you have suffered losses in an account handled by Mark Kaplan, call for a no charge consultation to discuss your options.
