MIAMI – Attorney Joseph A. Sacher, of the law firm Sacher, Zelman, Hartman, Paul, Beiley & Sacher, P.A., recently co-moderated the Florida International Bankers Association’s (FIBA) second Broker-Dealer Roundtable.
The event was hosted by Veris Consulting. Joseph Sacher also co-moderated the first Roundtable event held this past June and sponsored by KPMG. The participants were mostly comprised of banking and broker-dealer representatives for local and international banks and broker-dealers.
The Roundtables included lively, interactive discussions concerning topics such as Foreign Finders, Recent Enforcement Actions, and other current Regulatory “Hot Topics” that impact the South Florida Broker-Dealer community.
In particular, much of the discussion was devoted to increased scrutiny by the regulatory community (FINRA and SEC), the growing number of serious enforcement actions, increased fines, and the unprecedented pressures being felt throughout the investment community, in the wake of the financial crisis, and high profile regulatory matters, such as the collapse of MF Global.
Sacher’s practice areas include corporate, banking and securities litigation (trials, appeals, and arbitrations), as well as compliance and regulatory matters, including SEC and other governmental investigations. He has extensive experience in general and complex commercial litigation in state and federal courts.
