Gibbs Law Group’ securities fraud lawyers are dedicated to enforcing investors’ rights under the various securities laws and regulations. Over the years, our attorneys have brought many successful securities class action lawsuits against companies that violated securities laws.
Securities laws cover a wide range of topics and offer protection to investors who have been deceived or treated unfairly. Without these securities laws, investors would be entirely at the mercy of large corporate interests.
Securities Laws & Regulations to Protect Investors
Securities laws and regulations were enacted in response to widespread violations of investors trust through deceptive and meaningless disclosures by companies in the early 20th Century. Following the Stock Market Crash of 1929 and the resulting Great Depression, the U.S. Government enacted various securities laws and regulations as well as the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to better ensure such violations did not continue to occur.
Security Laws and Regulations
Some of the main laws and regulations governing the securities industry include:
- Securities Act of 1933
- Securities Exchange Act of 1934
- Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002
- Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act
- SEC Rules and Regulations
