Attorney and compliance expert, Miriam Lefkowitz, will square off against Sander Ressler, expert witness and the owner of a compliance outsourcing business, as they exchange opposing theories of liability you may hear at a FINRA arbitration. This highly anticipated presentation will be moderated by IBDC-RIAC Alliance Member, Michael Schwartzberg, managing partner of Winget, Spadafora, and Schwartzberg and head of the firm's Broker-Dealer practice.

Lefkowitz, Ressler, and Schwartzberg will delve into:.

When should experts be retained?
When to retain an expert for regulatory investigations and enforcement proceedings;
How should an expert be chosen?
A brief discussion of expert strategies: i.e. Well Managed Portfolio Analysis;
How can arbitration outcomes be influenced by the retention of experts?
Have zoom arbitrations altered the impact experts may have on the arbitrators?
How involved should an expert be in preliminary case evaluations and preparation of the defense:
  • Should experts be involved in preparing answers?
  • Should experts be involved in preparing witnesses for mediation and/or arbitration?
  • Should experts attend mediations?
