Securities Expert Witnesses
Securities are notes, stocks, treasury stocks, bonds, or certificates or any financial asset that has a monetary value that can be traded. The most common types of securities are equity, like common stocks and debt securities or fixed securities, such as bonds and banknotes. Securities are important to global financial markets. Equity securities are traded on the New York Stock Exchange and other financial exchanges worldwide. Fixed securities are sold by investment firms, banks and other financial institutions. Our securities expert witnesses, speakers, and consultants are scholars and researchers from major universities and professionals who have worked in the securities industry for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and various securities investment firms such as Bear Stearns. They have served as experts or consultants for the New York Stock Exchange, Morgan Stanley Dean Witter, and UBS PaineWebber, Inc., among others. Our securities experts testify regularly in federal and state courts and in arbitrations before the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD), the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), the National Futures Association (NFA), and the American Arbitration Association (AAA). In addition, they are prolific authors on such topics as securities regulation, securities fraud, and class-action litigation.
