Don't Wait To Protect Your Rights If You're Under Investigation For Securities Fraud
Security fraud investigations often result after prolonged patterns of unusual investment behavior on the part of brokers and financial advisers.
Once a case is referred to the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC), an intensive audit and review of a broker's or financial adviser's activities is undertaken. At this stage in an investigation, brokers and financial advisers have certain rights that they should assert in order to avoid investigative over-reach on the part of the SEC. Getting an attorney is vital.
Plus, the involvement with a lawyer early on who can redirect the investigation or answer questions can preempt further action on the part of the SEC.

When Working With Prosecutors Is Necessary
If you are guilty of stock fraud, working with prosecutors may be your best option for having the sentence or charges against you reduced. Depending on the scope of an investigation, prosecutors may be talking to other suspects and reaching deals that implicate you in crimes you did not commit or did not play a key role in.
