Defending Clients Against Securities Law Investigations and Prosecutions
The attorneys at McKay Chadwell are uniquely qualified to guide corporate clients and individuals through securities fraud investigations and enforcement actions.
Our in-depth understanding of how government and regulatory agencies conduct these actions allows us to provide quality representation to our clients in matters involving:
- allegations of civil and criminal securities fraud
- stock manipulation
- unregistered securities
- accounting and options irregularities (including backdating)
Often, a securities fraud investigation will include related areas of alleged white collar misconduct, such as mortgage fraud, money laundering, tax evasion, or charges brought under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
Our Breadth of Expertise Allows Us to Shield our Clients from Civil, Criminal, and Regulatory Securities Law Liability
We often work with prosecutors and the SEC during the grand jury process to promote early resolution of investigations without criminal charges. When charges are brought, we vigorously defend our client in court. If necessary, we use our in-depth understanding of case law and the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines in sentencing hearings to establish mitigation and advocate for just, lenient terms.
