Sparks, Nevada FINRA 8210 Defense Lawyer

You may have read that Lawrence Burton Goldstein of Sparks, Nevada 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 April 2010, Lawrence Burton Goldstein joined McNally Financial Services Corporation and became registered as a general securities representative. The firm later filed a Uniform Termination Notice (Form U5), disclosing that he had been terminated due to alleged misconduct. According to the findings, FINRA sent a request to Goldstein for on-the-record testimony in connection to alleged unsuitable and excessive trading. The findings state that Goldstein responded to FINRA during a phone call and through email stating that he allegedly received, acknowledged, and refused to provide the on-the-record testimony at any given time. Although Lawrence Burton Goldstein is not currently 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 associated with a member, or any other person subject to FINRA’s 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.” FINRA Rule 8210(c) states that “[n]o…person shall fail to provide information or testimony…pursuant to this Rule.” A violation of F1NRA Rule 8210 is also a violation of FINRA Rule 2010, which requires associated persons, in the conduct of their business, to “observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade.” Unfortunately, Lawrence Burton Goldstein 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.
