Stone Bonner & Rocco LLP, Recognized Leaders

The primary concern for having standing to file for arbitration is that a measurable financial loss has been suffered by the individual wishing to file.

Beyond this initial requirement, the conditions for pursuing arbitration depend on the circumstances, and in some cases, the subject matter, of the dispute. For example, arbitration is commonly used in securities disputes, given the option for arbitration available under the association governing securities transactions, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) when certain criteria for eligibility are met.

Further, when a dispute or other legal matter arises out of a contract that contains an arbitration agreement, any party subject to the contract is entitled to file for arbitration against other parties to the contract. Such is often the case in both domestic and international commercial contracts.
