The Portman Law Firm

The Portman Law Firm specializes in the representation of individual investors against brokerage firms through the filing of securities arbitration and state and federal court litigation. The firm represents investors who have suffered damages as a result of unsuitable recommendations, churning, misrepresentation, unauthorized transactions, mutual fund switching, margin over-concentration, failure to supervise, employee stock option abuses, position over-concentration, non-diversification of portfolios, negligence, and fraud.

The Portman Law Firm is located in Los Angeles, California, but represents individuals nationwide.


Virtually all account agreements that individuals have with brokerage firms contain a provision which requires arbitration before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), formerly known as the NASD. Investors who maintain securities accounts with brokerage firms that have been damaged as a result of misconduct of the brokerage firm or broker are required to file their dispute before FINRA.
