FINRA Arbitration Awards

NYLS – FINRA Arbitration Awards Project

Welcome to the New York Law School FINRA Arbitration Awards Project.

This Project provides an online platform that organizes large amounts data about FINRA arbitration awards. Currently, FINRA’s search portal only displays the actual text of individual awards in PDF format. By contrast, this platform enables lawyers and industry professionals to search and view the various components of numerous awards in an easily accessible format.

The data is displayed in a chart with 17 columns identifying information such as names of the parties, names of the arbitrators, a summary description of the various counts, and the amount of damages awarded.

Users can search the data through the field provided at the top of the chart and also customize the order of the data by clicking of the top of any column. Users must use the scroll bar at the bottom of the chart to view the full range of data. This platform only includes awards initiated by a customer against a member, rather than those initiated by members against other members.


Detailed Instructions on How to Search the FINRA Arbitation Records

In order to search for relevant FINRA records, start by clicking the respective year that you wish to search. If you are interested in a particular party involved in an arbitration or a particular arbitrator, you may start by searching that party’s name in the “Search” box. The “Search” box functions as a way for users to search through the entire year’s database for any particular search terms. Therefore, types of securities, parties, particular outcomes, arbitrators, claims, damages, etc. can all be searched using this function. In addition, if users wish to search all filings in order of “Date of Filing” or “Date Completed,” they may do so by clicking on the column heading, and the arbitrations will automatically sort in that order.

To navigate the table move the horizontal scroller at the bottom of the table.
