Los Angeles Investment Fraud Attorneys
Securities fraud, or investment fraud, is committed when a corporate officer or director makes a material misrepresentation, withholding, or distortion related to stock information (usually pertaining to the value of the stock) or an officer or director unlawfully discloses confidential information related to a stock, and then an individual or entity acts upon the unlawful disclosure of certain confidential stock information. This can be committed on paper or over the internet. The means of committing the crime does not change the law regarding the criminal act. 15 U.S.C. Chapters 2A-2D govern with regards to the appropriate law and punishment for securities fraud. If convicted of corporate fraud you may be facing large fines and/or imprisonment.
Like many types of financial fraud, securities fraud could include stockbrokers, traders, accountants, and attorneys. These professionals have the ability to defraud stockholders our of millions of dollars. The Securities and Exchange Commission and federal courts have imposed both civil and criminal securities fraud sanctions upon a wide group of organized crime rings.
