Experienced Business Litigation Law Firm
Our experience in the financial industry is not limited to representing victims of fraud. We also represent financial companies as well as financial professionals who are embroiled in industry disputes involving the following matters:
- U5 Forms – including defamation claims, amendments and expungements
- Restrictive covenants/noncompete agreements/employment agreements
- Disciplinary actions
- Hiring/firm transitions
- Employee forgivable loan claims/promissory notes
- Claims brought by agrieved clients
We also protect the rights of industry participants who have been unfairly attacked by regulators as well as by competitors who use illegal or improper means of competition. Both regulation and competition are fundamental to the efficiency and integrity of our securities markets. But when overzealous regulators go after firms for legitimate trading practices, Block & Landsman will step in to protect the rights of the industry members. Similarly, when a firm’s competitor hires away employees who improperly remove customer lists and other protected information, Block & Landsman has successfully obtained injunctions to protect the assets and prevent the unfair competition from being accomplished.
Over the years, we have represented clients before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”), the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”), and state and federal courts across the country. Well-respected in our practice area, our securities and commodities litigation attorneys are published authors who are often asked to participate in speaking engagements. We use our 90 years of combined understanding and experience with state and federal laws to negotiate a successful outcome.
