FINRA Postpones In-Person Arbitrations and Mediations

In response to the evolving coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), FINRA has decided to administratively postpone all in-person arbitration and mediation proceedings scheduled through May 1, 2020. If you have an in-person hearing or mediation session that is postponed as a result of this decision, you will be contacted by FINRA staff to reschedule or discuss remote scheduling options.

Please note that this decision does not affect other case deadlines. All case deadlines will continue to apply and must be timely met unless the parties jointly agree otherwise.

We recognize that this decision may cause inconvenience and we do not make it lightly. We are taking this preventative action out of an abundance of caution, in the interest of public safety. The well-being of our FINRA employees, arbitrators, stakeholders and communities is of paramount importance.
