You may have read that Joseph V. Alhadeff of Miami Beach, Florida 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.
Do You Need a FINRA 8210 Defense Attorney?
In November 2012, Joseph V. Alhadeff joined National Securities Corporation and became registered as a registered options principal and a general securities representative. According to the findings, FINRA sent a request to Alhadeff for information and documents regarding their investigation into a former representative he used to supervise. The findings state that Alhadeff responded to FINRA through email stating that he allegedly received, acknowledged, and refused to provide the requested information. Joseph Alhadeff is not currently registered or associated with a FINRA member firm but is subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction.
FINRA Rule 8210(a) states that, for purposes of an investigation, FINRA may require any person subject to its jurisdiction to provide information and to permit FINRA staff to inspect and copy books and records that are in the person’s possession, custody, or control. FINRA Rule 8210(c) provides that “[n]o . . . person shall fail to provide information . . . or to permit an inspection and copying of books, records, or accounts pursuant to this Rule.” A violation of FINRA Rule 8210 is also a violation of FINRA Rule 2010.
Unfortunately, Joseph V. Alhadeff might 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.
