LEGAL EMPLOYMENT

1989 - Present

Since 1989, I have been affiliated with law firms that focus on securities-industry matters.My core areas of concentration are as follows:

Regulatory/Compliance Counsel
I provide ongoing regulatory counsel (federal, states, self-regulatory) by

  • reviewing initial investigative demands,
  • preparing responsive submissions,
  • representing witnesses during interviews,
  • representing members during on-site examinations and investigations,
  • negotiating settlements with regulatory staff, and
  • representing members during disciplinary hearings and subsequent appeals.

As part of my regulatory practice I visit clients' OSJs and Branch Offices, and perform SRO-quality examinations/investigations for purposes of ascertaining possible compliance deficiencies or inadequate practices. Similarly, I provide daily counsel on a wide range of retail and trading matters.

White-Collar Criminal
With the advent of increased criminalization of industry misconduct, I represent targets, subjects, and witnesses before the United States Department of Justice (Antitrust Division), Federal Bureau of Investigation, United States Attorneys, state Attorneys General, and District Attorneys. Towards that end I negotiate Queen-for-a-Day letters, counsel clients as to the ramifications of cooperation with various law enforcement agencies, and provide representation from pre-indictment through arraignment phases.

Membership/Issuers
I counsel applicants on initial membership issues and existing members seeking to modify the terms of their membership. Towards those ends I negotiate with regulatory staff and, when necessary, represent applicants/members during regulatory proceedings and subsequent administrative appeals. I was counsel to the successful Applicants in the SEC's reversal of the NASD's (now known as FINRA's) denial of Restriction Agreement modifications In the Matter of the Application of Domestic Securities, 34-37559, http://www.sec.gov/litigation/opinions/3437559.txt (August 13, 1996). The Domestic case is considered a seminal decision in the area of membership applications/modification requests.  Similarly, I counsel public issuers and companies contemplating public listing on listing-related problems. 

Litigation/Arbitration
I represent member firms, registered personnel, and public customers during litigation/arbitration matters. I provide counsel/expert witness review to other lawyers on the regulatory ramifications of various litigation issues. Additionally, my service as a Chairperson or panelist on American Arbitration Association and SRO arbitration panels has provided me with a dynamic perspective that allows me to better assess the merits of particular cases and to fashion appropriate hearing strategies.

Whistleblower

I represent individuals seeking to present criminal and civil concerns in their capacity as a Whistleblower.  Towards that end, I assist in the preparation of required filings to secure available bounties; prepare clients for testimony; and interact with the assigned regulatory/prosecutorial staff towards developing the matter.

Congressional
I communicate with various House and Senate Committees on topics of interest to my clients. In 1999 and 2000, I represented several clients before the Senate's Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations of the Committee on Governmental Affairs. That representation included responding to document requests, defending Staff investigative and deposition testimony, and attending publicly televised hearings.  I have been referenced in Congressional Testimony (the Subcommittee on Capital Markets, Insurance and Government Sponsored Enterprises Committee on Financial Services U.S. House of Representatives: Hearing on "Reviewing US Capital Market Structure: The New York Stock Exchange and Related Issues") http://financialservices.house.gov/media/pdf/101603jg.pdf
