What is securities law?

Securities come in the form of stocks, bonds, a package of mortgages for sale, or something representing an investment in a company. Securities law governs these financial instruments and is largely designed to prevent fraud, market manipulation, and insider training while promoting transparency and accountability.

Securities law can be broken down into the following areas:

Transactional. Selling securities to financial institutions or investor groups, corporate mergers, or establishing a business

Regulatory. Oversight and compliance regulation and enforcement from state and federal agencies such as the SEC or Department of Justice

Litigation. Involvement in a lawsuit stemming from investments, shareholders derivative action, or a suit against a broker

Securities law is extremely complex and constantly evolving at the state and federal levels. Due to the high-stakes nature of securities, securities fraud and wrongdoing can have extremely damaging effects on shareholders, consumers, and companies.

You must seek counsel from an experienced corporate and securities litigator who not only keeps up-to-date on securities regulations and legislation but also has a deep understanding of how to help consumers recover losses from corporate wrongdoing.

How can a securities lawyer help me?

Securities lawyers provide counsel to companies, financial institutions, private equity firms, and individual investors on a wide range of legal and business issues. Companies that want to go public or need help with compliance with securities laws must consult a corporate and securities lawyer who can guide them through the complicated regulations.

Corporate and securities lawyers also represent investors who believe they may have been misled or manipulated in an investment process. Securities litigation often ends up in arbitration; if you’re seeking arbitration or are currently pursuing legal action, the corporate and securities lawyers at Herman Jones LLP can handle all matters of the litigation.
