About Dobin Law Group
Marc S. Dobin founded the firm in June 2008.
Marc started in securities arbitration as an in-house litigator for Prudential Securities Incorporated. After deciding that he did not have the “New York state of mind” he moved to Florida where he took up residence in Jupiter in 1993. He worked for a mid-size West Palm Beach law firm for five years and then, with a partner, formed their own firm called Dobin & Jenks, LLP in 1999. The partners went their separate ways in the summer of 2008 and Marc opened Marc S. Dobin, P.A. The firm strives to provide large law firm quality with personalized attention.
In 2011, the firm’s name was changed to Dobin Law Group, P.A. to better reflect the team approach of our lawyers and staff. Marc represented primarily securities industry clients for the first ten or so years of his practice. We have since represented several investors in arbitrations. We believe that the rules do not change just because the lawyer changes from one side of the table to the other. An unauthorized trade either “is” or “isn’t”. Suitability is determined by a number of factors. There are defenses to all claims in arbitration (other than theft, one would think). So representing industry parties and public customers is not inconsistent.
One area of practice that has seen an uptick is expungements for brokers. Because the CRD reporting requirements are so inflexible, a broker may end up with a customer complaint recorded on a U-4 or U-5 because of a product failure or other reason not related to the broker’s conduct. When this is the case, an expungement is the appropriate remedy. We represent brokers in FINRA expungement matters.
Since the firm’s founding in 2008, the practice has expanded to include the representation of businesses in a variety of disputes. Contract breaches, covenants not to compete and domain name ownership disputes are among the different types of matters the firm has handled for its clients.
Marc Dobin is also a mediator, primarily in securities industry-related disputes.
