SEC Investigations Attorney

Providing a Proactive Defense to Civil and Criminal Securities Investigations

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is responsible for regulating and enforcing various federal laws governing the stock exchange. The SEC expends significant resources  investigating allegations of insider trading and other forms of securities fraud. More and more often, the SEC works in tandem with the Department of Justice to investigate claims of impropriety in parallel criminal proceedings.

If you are under investigation by the SEC, it is critical that you have an experienced lawyer on your side as soon as possible. At minimum, an SEC investigation can create significant professional problems. At worst, an SEC investigation could lead to criminal charges. Atlanta SEC investigations attorney Jerome “Jerry” Froelich Jr. defends individuals and corporations across Georgia, the Southeast and the United States against alleged violations of securities laws.

The SEC and DOJ investigate all types of actions, including:

  • Insider trading
  • Making misstatements or material omissions in SEC disclosures
  • Stock manipulation schemes (also called “pump and dump” schemes)
  • Ponzi schemes

The sooner Jerry is involved, the more likely he will be able to show SEC investigators that an indictment is not appropriate based on the facts of your case.
