Aggressively Protecting Our Clients From Serious Criminal Penalties

While many securities complaints are resolved through arbitration and do not result in criminal charges, certain accusations are heavily prosecuted by the federal authorities. Our firm is frequently called upon to defend clients against the following securities fraud charges:

  • Illegally trading on or communicating insider information
  • Churning a client's investment account for commissions
  • Making a material misrepresentation or omission in an SEC filing
  • Defrauding or misleading investors in the sale of a security
  • Promoting or knowingly participating in a Ponzi scheme

We will independently investigate your case with the help of experienced forensic accountants and other experts, conduct pre-indictment negotiations with the SEC and federal prosecutors on your behalf, and aggressively advocate for your rights in court.
