Summary

Jeffrey S. Kob benefits Evans & Kob clients as a seasoned attorney who has experienced securities litigation and arbitration from virtually every perspective for the last 30 years, as a clerk to two federal judges, as a FINRA arbitrator, as an SEC enforcement attorney, as general counsel to a large independent broker-dealer and in private practice as trial counsel to various broker-dealers and registered representatives. His securities and trial background make Mr. Kob uniquely qualified to handle a variety of securities related issues.Mr. Kob has appeared in various federal and states courts and in over 350 securities arbitrations before FINRA Dispute Resolution, the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and other bodies across the country. Among other major litigation actions, he represented the prevailing party before the California Supreme Court on a key securities issue which affected all securities arbitrations conducted in California. In Jevne v. Superior Court, 111 P.3d 954 (Cal. 2005), Mr. Kob successfully convinced the California Supreme Court that federal securities law preempted certain California created arbitration rules. Mr. Kob has also acted as a NASD (now FINRA) arbitrator, often as the Chairperson of three member panels.While a law student at Washington University in St. Louis, Mr. Kob worked for Chief Judge James E. Meredith for the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri. He earned a clerkship with a federal appellate court and began his legal career as a clerk for the Honorable James E. Barrett for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. Mr. Kob continued to develop his base of securities and litigation experience by joining the Los Angeles Regional Office of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as an enforcement attorney and then Branch Chief, where he directed a staff of attorneys and investigators in various inquiries and administrative and court enforcement actions under the federal securities laws.
