My law firm focuses its practice exclusively on representing those in high-stakes, complex securities cases nationwide. The firm represents those under SEC and FINRA investigation, as well as those who have already been charged by securities regulators and the government. We also zealously fight to recover investment losses for defrauded stock market investors, and defend securities professionals in promissory note cases in FINRA arbitrations.
As a former SEC Prosecutor with over twenty years of experience, I bring to the table for each of my clients seasoned and practical judgment, intimate knowledge of the securities industry and strategic, creative thought. My philosophy of the practice of law is “old school” – individualized attention, responsiveness to client concerns, and a constant focus on navigating the client through often stressful and difficult times to achieve the best possible resolution.

Thereafter, he accepted a position as Staff Counsel in the Enforcement Division of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, where he worked for almost four years, ultimately obtaining the title of Senior Counsel. For part of that time, Mr. Chase served as a Special Assistant United States Attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s Office – Economic Crimes Division in the Southern District of Florida.
