The Oregon Legislature passed Senate Bill 95 and House Bill 2622 to amend and create new law regarding reporting by certain securities professionals of suspected financial exploitation by others. For securities professionals, certain financial institutions and trust companies, the new bills allow discretionary temporary holds on disbursements and certain other account activity. FINRA Rules 2165 and 4512 create complementary requirements and discretionary holds for FINRA-registered brokers.

Fiduciary litigator Victoria Blachly and securities litigator/FINRA arbitrator Darlene Pasieczny explain how these new laws and rules seek to empower financial professionals to help their clients.
