Do You Need a FINRA 8210 Defense Attorney?
You may have read that Najib Hossain Khan of Woodmere, New York 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.
In May 2017, Najib Hossain Khan joined Citigroup Global Markets Inc. and became registered as an Investment Company and Variable Contracts Product Representative. The firm later filed a Uniform Termination Notice (Form U5), disclosing that he had been terminated due to previous suspected involvement in theft from customer bank accounts. According to the findings, FINRA sent a request to Khan for information and documents regarding their investigation into the alleged misconduct. The findings state that Khan allegedly received, acknowledged, and failed to timely provide the requested documents and information. Although Najib Hossain Khan is no longer associated with any FINRA member firm, he remains subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction.
FINRA Rule 8210(a)(1) states in relevant part that FINRA has the right to “require a person associated with a member, or any other person subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction to provide information orally, in writing or electronically” FINRA Rule 8210(c) similarly provides that “[n]o member or person shall fail to provide information pursuant to this Rule.” A violation of FINRA Rule 8210 is also a violation of FINRA Rule 2010, which requires associated persons to “observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade.”
Unfortunately, Najib Hossain Khan 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.
