FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., March 26 LawFuel – Investor Law News — As a key contributor to the enforcement of investors’ statutory rights under provisions of the Florida Investor Protection Act, Securities Fraud Attorney Mark Tepper has retained NewsMark Public Relations to underscore his campaign against abusive broker sale practices.
Tepper, a former New York Assistant Attorney General and Chief Trial
Counsel at the Bureau of Investor Protection and Securities, representing
the interests of investors in criminal and civil actions in over 30 years
of practicing law, has completed examination of a five-year survey of
Florida Arbitration Awards.
An author of numerous articles on securities arbitration, his findings, the latest in his efforts to determine whether Florida arbitrators have enforced the statutory rights provided to investment fraud victims, will be published next month in the PIABA Bar Journal of the Public Investors Arbitration Bar Association. “I’m appalled by the staggering percentage of times, over the years of the study that investors failed to reap full benefits of the excellent provisions of the Florida Investor Protection Act.” Tepper said.
“Attorney Mark Tepper brings an integrity and passion to his mission to
protect investors who have been victimized by aggressive broker sale
tactics. We’re considering a number of speaking platforms where he can
share his invaluable legal insights with individual investors who feel
their portfolios have been mishandled,” said NewsMark CEO Mark Hopkinson.
