I just got an SEC subpoena: here are you next steps

If you have received a subpoena from the SEC, you might be freaking out and frantically searching the Internet to determine what you should do and who you should call. How you react can play a part in how your case ultimately turns out. Making the wrong move could lead to disaster including but not limited to criminal prosecution. Thankfully, you don’t have to handle this on your own. Our team of tough, smart lawyers know how to fight back so that you can be protected.

The first step when dealing with a SEC subpoena is to determine if you are the subject of an investigation. Make no mistake about it, there is an investigation. You can be the subject or you may just have information that is material to its investigation. While the subpoena itself may not alert you to this, a skilled attorney can often read the subpoena and get a good idea as to what si going on.

Keep in mind that there are two different types of subpoenas: one for documents and one for testimony. Of course, you can get both at the same time. The timeframe to provide the documents may be short. You must understand that any documents that you provide in response to an SEC subpoena can be used against you. You have the right to remain silent but you cannot just ignore the subpoena. Again, this is why you need legal guidance.
