On October 9, 2018, Scott Silver lectured at the University of Miami School of Law Securities Arbitration Clinic. The clinic was initially funded by FINRA and serves an important public service helping many small investors pursue their claims while teaching the next generation of lawyers.
Scott Silver has been actively representing investors in claims for over twenty years and is a graduate of Miami Law School, Class of ’96. Scott spoke about the FINRA discovery process, the importance of pre-filing discovery and shared stories of previous experiences including a recent case for a woman named Flossie whose financial advisor tried to make himself a beneficiary of her estate. Scott highlighted how many cases revolve around issues of elder financial fraud or abuse.
Scott also enjoyed some time on campus and meeting 80’s movie star, Christian Slater, who was helping register students to vote.
Securities arbitration may be faster than a court case. However, discovery can be challenging especially for a product failure case. Wall Street has created many complex investment products, almost all of which have substantial internal costs. When these products implode, the same discovery is necessary in multiple investor securities arbitration claim. Scott highlighted a recent case in Puerto Rico where over 2,000 FINRA claims were filed and over 10 million pages of discovery was produced. Our team of lawyers continue to prosecute many cases involving Wall Street investments that were deceptively created, sold and traded.
