Defended a broker-dealer and its chief compliance officer in a large FINRA investigation that was settled on favorable terms.

ClientBroker-dealer and chief compliance officer
DescriptionRepresented an independent broker-dealer and its chief compliance officer in one of the largest cases that FINRA brought in 2009. The firm was fined $1 million for supervisory failures that allegedly led to churning of customer accounts and excessive commissions. The chief compliance officer was fined and suspended. We were retained to settle the case after another law firm represented the broker-dealer, and the investigation was almost complete. We persuaded FINRA to drop several charges and to agree to settlement terms that were significantly lower than FINRA had initially proposed.
