Miami Investment Fraud Defense Attorney
The buying and selling of securities in this country is an all-too common practice. Whether it’s your business, or a money-making hobby; whether you invest huge sums of capital or a couple extra dollars from your paycheck. Because of that, everyone is looking for an edge. Unfortunately, when people buy and sell securities based on non-public information, it may be the crime of “insider trading.”
There are several federal agencies, most notably the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), involved in these investigations. Usually, these crimes are charged as felonies. There are other parties involved in securities too—the brokerage firms and brokers. When they are suspected of providing false information or promises to clients, they can be charged with investment fraud. The penalties surrounding insider trading and investment fraud are not to be taken lightly.
