You may have read that Mamoun Chater of Asbury Park, New Jersey was permanently barred by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) from working in the securities industry because he failed to comply with FINRA Rule 8210 and 2010.
Do You Need a FINRA 8210 Defense Attorney?
In September 2019, Mamoun Chater joined Merrill Lynch and was registered as General Securities Representative and as an Investment Company and Variable Contracts Products Representative. Merrill Lynch later filed a Uniform Termination Notice (Form U5) in February 2020, disclosing Chater’s termination for allegedly failing registration requirements. According to the findings, FINRA sent a request to Chater to produce documents and information in connection with their investigation regarding the termination. The findings stated that Chater responded to FINRA in an email stating that he had received the request but refused to provide the documents or information at any time. Although Mamoun Chater is no longer registered or associated with a FINRA member firm he remains subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction.
FINRA Rule 8210(a)(1) states, in relevant part, that FINRA may require a person subject to its jurisdiction “to provide information orally, in writing, or electronically and to testify at a location specified by FINRA staff with respect to any matter involved in [a FINRA] investigation [or] examination.” FINRA Rule 8210(c) further states that “[n]o person shall fail to provide information or testimony pursuant to this Rule.” A violation of FINRA Rule 8210 is also a violation of FINRA Rule 2010.
Unfortunately, Mamoun Chatermight have avoided that FINRA 8210 bar from the securities industry with a skilled and experienced FINRA 8210 defense attorney. It is important, early on, to have a FINRA defense attorney advise you on how not to make matters worse and resolve the dispute with the least amount of sanctions which could range from censures to fines, suspensions, permanent bars, and/or referrals to federal or state prosecutors. You will need an experienced FINRA defense lawyer who not only has knowledge of FINRA rules and procedures, the securities laws and the appropriate sanction for the alleged misconduct but also has an excellent reputation and credibility with the FINRA attorneys to negotiate the best outcome.
