How ArbSelector® Works

Submit Prospective Arbitrator List.

You provide the list of prospective arbitrators and bios supplied by FINRA, along with the Claimant’s Statement of Claim, as soon as that information is available to you.

We Provide Your Summary Report.

This report is a comprehensive, side-by-side comparison of potential FINRA arbitrators, including preliminary rankings based on key metrics, including ratios from prior awards.

You Select Your Arbitrators. We Monitor Them.

Once the panel is finalized and our team has been notified, we continually monitor each panelist, and alert you on a weekly basis of any new awards involving your arbitrators, providing ongoing due diligence throughout the duration of your case.

Report Inventory
