Arbitration Procedure Manual
- This 1,000 plus, hardbound book covers over 225 subjects that arise in customer-broker
and broker-brokerage firm disputes. First published in l990, this third edition is now the
standard text for law school clinical programs on securities arbitration and is used by
individuals representing themselves, customer attorneys and defense counsel, nationwide.
My goal has been to present balanced, pragmatic analyses of these subjects, combining the
"best of" the annual Practising Law Institute programs on securities
arbitration, which I've chaired since l986. A great deal of time away from by practice -
representing customers, brokers and firms - was spent on this book and I believe it will
assist you in this tremendously contentious areas of the law.
How Arbitration Works
as a Strategic Investment
- Mediation and Arbitration of Employment
Arbitration for Brokers, Attorneys, and Investors
Contrasting arbitration of securities disputes with litigation in the courts, this book
reviews the interaction of federal securities laws and arbitration in light of caselaw.
This review culminates in the recent U.S. Supreme Court cases supporting the validity of
predisputed arbitration agreements even when there are claims of fraud and violations of
federal securities law. The common law view of arbitration and the Federal Arbitration Act
of 1925 are discussed, as are the arbitration process and forums within the securities
industry. Procedures (e.g. evaluating the merits of a claim, presenting a securities case
to arbitration panels throughout the nation, and appealing an arbitration award) are also
examined. It is the only book to date to discuss the new AAA Securities Arbitration Rules.
This blockbuster bestseller--more than 100,000 copies sold--is considered to be the bible
of options trading. Now completely revised and updated to encompass all the latest options
trading vehicles, it supplies traders and serious investors with an abundance of new,
strategic opportunities for managing their investments. Examples make clear the power of
each strategy in carefully defined market condition.
