Securities Fraud Defense Lawyers
Investors rely on their stockbrokers and financial advisers to manage and grow their financial investments. When the market does well, investors herald their advisers as investment geniuses. When the market does not perform as expected, many investors blame the actions of their financial advisers for their losses. When the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD) get involved, these allegations become serious.
When accusations of securities fraud arise, you need serious criminal defense attorneys protecting your rights.
At the Shapiro Law Firm, our Plano defense attorneys have been defending clients throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area and the state of Texas against white collar criminal charges for more than 40 years. We are committed to results and committed to protecting our clients’ rights and freedom.
Securities Fraud — A Serious Offense Requiring Serious Defense
Securities fraud encompasses a wide range of activities, including:
- Manipulating stock prices
- Using deceptive practices to induce investments
- Lying on SEC filings
- Misrepresenting a publicly traded company’s financial reports
- Insider trading
Securities fraud allegations and SEC and NASD investigations alone can derail your career and destroy your professional reputation. If formally charged and convicted, you are facing the possibility of large fines and years in federal prison.
Do not wait until formal charges have been filed against you. Consult with a criminal defense attorney as soon as you learn you are being investigated for securities fraud. There are steps we can take during the investigation phase to shield you from additional liability and prevent unnecessary government intrusion into your life.
