Werner R. Kranenburg is an attorney and counselor-at-law admitted to practice law in New York State and various US federal courts and is a qualified arbitrator. His law practice, Kranenburg, is based in the heart of the financial centre of London, England. Kranenburg's focus is cross-border litigation and arbitration, in particular securities and corporate litigation, and advising on transatlantic legal matters.

Kranenburg is committed to the vigorous representation of its clients in courts of law and in dispute resolution forums, such as provided by the US Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) in New York and in London. Clients may be plaintiffs or defendants and engagements may concern controversies such as accounting fraud, insider trading, merger-related issues, corporate governance matters, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contract, failure to supervise, unauthorised trading, misrepresentation and unfair, deceptive trade practices.


Hundreds of securities fraud class actions and shareholder derivative actions are filed each year by diligent shareholders, the outcomes of which at times significantly positively affect the value of investments and the way corporations are run for the better. Thousands of FINRA arbitration cases are filed each year; the majority of these result in a recovery for the investor.

If you are a private or institutional investor trading in US securities or you do business with, or are, a FINRA-regulated securities firm, contact me today, before you may require counsel so we are already acquainted when you do.

  Kranenburg supports the New York City Civil Courts Volunteer Attorney Program, Consumer Debt, and London's Free Representation Unit, a tribunal advocacy charity.
