Securities Regulation Definition
Clients also need advice in investigations and enforcement actions concerning possible violations of the securities laws. These investigations may be conducted by the SEC, by state securities commissions or attorneys general, FINRA and other self-regulatory organizations (including, for accounting firms, the PCAOB), and federal or state criminal prosecutors. Securities regulatory lawyers may represent individuals or entities in these inquiries, and must often coordinate with other law firms in industry-wide investigations. Securities regulatory lawyers conduct internal investigations for companies or their boards of directors as well as regulatory entities, including individual, class, and derivative actions, and in arbitrations before FINRA, JAMS, AAA, and international arbitration forums.
