Being charged with securities fraud or insider trading is a serious matter. It is usually a federal charge, which means you will face federal prosecutors and government agencies such as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).

SEC Violation Defense
Securities fraud can be committed by several parties. Company officials may deceive investors by presenting false information about their investments. A company officer, director or employee may unlawfully disclose confidential stock information to others. If a person knowingly acts on that confidential information, he or she can be charged with fraud or insider trading as well.
Because securities fraud often involves transmission of false or confidential information over the Internet, suspects are often charged with wire fraud. In addition, charges of accounting fraud and conspiracy may be brought against the suspects.
Our law firm has the skill and experience to defend you against these charges. We fight federal charges every day and know what it takes to be successful in federal court.
