I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.

NYC Stock Broker Fraud Lawyers

NYC is the epicenter of the USA when it comes to finances. Wall Street banks in NYC are blamed by the media, and court opinion, for the crisis of 2008. New laws, regulations, restrictions, and obligations have been placed on the banking industry as a result. Violations of laws regulating banks, brokerage firms, and trading securities, can result in criminal and civil penalties. Securities and investment fraud results in federal criminal charges, in addition to the cases being among some of the most complex in the justice legal system. Those accused of committing stock broker fraud specifically, should consult with NYC stock broker fraud attorneys who can help them.

Securities Fraud Laws

There are eight different federal laws that have been passed which govern the securities industry. These regulations govern broker behavior, in addition to financial institutions, companies, and other institutions.

Securities act of 1993 – which required public companies to provide their financial information, and other information, to investors and prohibits misrepresentation, fraud, in the sale of securities.
Securities act of 1934 – This gives the SEC authority over the securities industry. It gives the power to oversee brokerage firms, and it controls the registration of firms that offer securities. In addition, companies with $10 million or more in assets who have 500 or more owners, have to file reports available to the public. Conduct like insider trading is prohibited by this rule. In addition, the law imposes requirements for proxy solicitations.
Trust indenture Act of 1938 – This law requires a formal agreement between bondholders and bond issuers which conforms to the Act standards before bonds, and note are offered on sale.
Investment Advisers Act of 1940 – This act requires all solo practitioners to confirm with regulations before advising someone about investments. The firm has to register with the SEC. Amendments to this act in 1996 and 2010 made it so only registered investment companies with $100 million or more in assets are subject to register with the SEC.
Investment Company Act of 1940 – This regulates mutual funds, and other companies, who engage in securities trading and investing. Companies that fit this criteria must disclose their investment policies. The purpose of the act was to force companies to disclose sufficient public information on it’s fund and objectives, as well as the structure and operations of the company that the company purchases shares in.
Sarbanes Oxley of 2002 – This mandated enhanced disclosures and created a public company accounting oversight board to force tighter controls
Dodd Frank Act of 2010 – It established rules for transparency in corporate governance and imposed new disclosure requirements and trading restrictions.
Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act 2012 – This was done to minimize regulatory requirements to make it easier for businesses to raise funds in the public market

Many securities fraud cases arise out of Section 10b and Rule 10b-5 of the securities act of 1934. Section 10b is the antifraud provision in the 1934 securities act. This has been used to take legal actions in cases that involve insider trading, misleading company filings, and more. Rule 10b-5 prohibits any device, scheme, or artifice, which has a purpose to defraud. Under 10b-5, liabilities can arise from omissions, or misstatements of facts which investors would believe are important in their decision to buy and sell certain stock. These are the rules which are often used by prosecutors to sue brokers, companies, and others. These regulations have been used to help investors sue brokers who were entrusted with funds and committed a breach of fiduciary duty. Our NYC stock broker fraud defense lawyers can help you fight these charges.

Criminal Penalties

US Code Section 3301 defines federal securities fraud offenses that include a violation of the following codes:

U.S. Code Section 1348.
Section 32(a) of the 1934 Securities and Exchange Act
Section 24 of the 1933 Securities Act
Section 325 of the Trust Indenture Act of 1939
Section 217 of the 1940 Investment Advisers Act
Section 49 of the 1940 Investment Company Act

Under target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>18 U.S. Code Section 1348 criminal penalties are imposed for securities and commodities fraud. Under this code, you can be fined and sentenced up to 25 years in prison for knowingly committing, or attempting to commit, a scheme to defraud investors:

If you defrauded anyone in connection with a commodity which will be delivered in the future, or on an option on a commodity which will be delivered in the future, or a security which is issued as a class of securities which are registered, or required to be registered, under the SEC Act of 1964
If you get money, or property, in connection with the purchase/sale of commodities in the future by making misrepresentations or false statements

Section 32(a) of the Securities and Exchange Act has the following penalties:

You make violations, false, or misleading statements, as required by the Securities and Exchange Act. Penalties can include up to 20 years incarceration, and a fine up to $5,000,000. If it is a brokerage firm or financial institution which violated the law, the fines can be up to $25,000,000
Failure to file documents, and reports can result in a forfeiture of $100 per day each day not filed.
Violations by officers, stockholders, directores, employees can result in fines and civil penalties ranging from $10,000 to $2,000,000

Section 24 of the 1933 Securities act imposes up to 5 years in jail, and fines up to $10,000 or more for making false statements on required registration statements and for other violations of the rules and regulations.

Section 325 of the trust indenture act imposes penalties that include up to 5 years in jail, and fines up to $10,000 for bond issuers.

Section 217 of the Investment Advisors Act imposes penalties of up to 5 years incarceration and fines up to $10,000 for violations of the Act Rules and Act regulations. Section 49 of the Investment Company Act establishes the same penalty for certain violations of rules and regulations when it comes to mutual funds and other organizations who are selling their own securities to investors.
