State-Level Securities Regulation more Aggressive

Samuels Yoelin Kantor LLP

(October 23) The annual enforcement survey of the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) released today shows an increase in state-level securities law enforcement.

State securities regulators investigated roughly 6000 cases. About 10% were related to financial abuse of seniors. Unregistered sellers of unregistered securities amounted to the largest single category of investment fraud. NASAA members were able to restore $2.2B to investors in calendar-year 2011, and prison sentences resulting from state-initiated securities law enforcement actions came to over 1,650 years in total, a 50% jump from the previous year.

Client Reviews

Thank you for your most kind and efficient treatment during my dilemma.


Darlene was so helpful in this matter, I had been trying for months to get help and she came through for me . . . I would recommend her in a heartbeat.


From the first time I spoke with her about my lawsuit, to the successful conclusion, Darlene was always the support I needed.


You folks put on an excellent case and we were, to say the least, extremely nervous about the outcome.
