Duplication of Audio Files: If the hearing was recorded using a digital recorder, parties may request an audio recording of the hearings on CD at no charge. For hearings that were recorded on tape, FINRA Dispute Resolution uses the services of an outside vendor to duplicate the audio recordings. Certain fees may apply. Requests for audio recordings should be made in writing and directed to your Case Administrator.

 

Emergency Procedures:  In the event of an emergency, please contact a staff member immediately. The staff is familiar with emergency procedures and is ready to assist you. If an emergency occurs after hours and there is no staff available, please contact building security at (212) 417-7352 or (212) 858-4006.

Faxing:  As a courtesy, visitors may receive faxes free of charge. All incoming faxes must be clearly marked with the visitor’s name and the conference room assigned to the hearing. If you are expecting a fax, please notify the receptionist. You may retrieve faxes in the reception area. In order to avoid interruptions to the arbitration or mediation, we will not deliver the faxes to the conference rooms.
