The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) is a federal regulatory agency that was established to regulate commodity futures trading. Later, the National Futures Association (NFA) was set up as a self-regulatory organization responsible for the oversight of the futures trading industry, including commodities.
The commodities industry employs a process of arbitration to resolve disputes between customers and members through arbitration. Many cases involve claims against Introducing Brokers (IB), Futures Commission Merchants (FCM) and their agents who may excessively trade or churn their customers’ accounts, make unsuitable investment advice, and misrepresent facts to customers. In such instances, Our Miami commodities arbitration and litigation lawyers can help.
The NFA Arbitration process is generally more expeditious and less costly than litigation. During the arbitration process, both parties present their arguments and supporting documentary evidence to a panel that is comprised of impartial arbitrators, trained in the issues in controversy, who decides how the matter should be resolved. A Party to the arbitration can represent themselves or retain a Miami lawyer skilled in this particular area of litigation.
