A Securities Compliance Attorney Is Vital to Your Organization’s Long-Term Success
Today’s securities laws and regulations are remarkably complex. Without guidance from a knowledgeable legal team, it’s easy to make errors that make you noncompliant with both federal and state laws. Rather than face civil and criminal liability, your organization should build a compliance system that identifies and manages your risk.
Mangum & Associates has a considerable breadth of SEC regulatory and compliance experience, ranging across every one of our services and disciplines. This includes representing a variety of domestic and international clients such as hedge funds, start-up companies, private equity funds, FINRA broker/dealers, venture capitalists, individual entrepreneurs, and more on almost any aspect of a financial transaction.
Our regulatory and compliance attorneys will counsel you on day-to-day operations to ensure you are always in accordance with ever-changing federal and state securities laws and regulations.
Securities Laws and Regulations Are Continually Evolving
The modern financial and securities industries are highly regulated and constantly in flux. The SEC and state regulatory agencies frequently change their procedures, requirements, and enforcement priorities. Unless you have a clear understanding of the current rules and your compliance, it’s easy to make costly mistakes that can damage both your transactions and reputation. To avoid this, it’s vital to have a securities compliance attorney on your team.
When you work with Magnum & Associates, you’ll benefit from our careful tracking of securities law developments as well as our thoughtful and practical advice.
Proactive Securities Compliance Audits and Strategic Planning
If you’re involved in the securities industry, you should regularly schedule assessments of your SEC and Blue Sky law compliance. These audits can help you identify institutional weaknesses and build solutions — and therefore eliminate the risk of an SEC investigation or enforcement action. If it’s been years since your last securities compliance audit, now is the time to contact Magnum & Associates.
