What You Should Do
If you are under investigation by the SEC, DOJ or FINRA, there are several important points to remember:
- Hire an experienced securities defense lawyer. Though you may know a lawyer or already have an attorney for certain affairs, a real estate lawyer or a business attorney cannot properly defend you in this type of case. Speak to David R. Chase, whose practice is exclusively focused on securities law.
- Stop talking. Do not talk about the investigation subject matter to anyone, with the exception of your attorney. Any conversations, including e-mail, phone and text correspondence could be used against you later.
- Don’t destroy documents. Preserve all documents. If you destroy anything, you run the risk of being charged with obstruction of justice.
