New York State Investor Protection Bureau

The
Investor Protection Bureau of the State of New York is a division of the New York State Attorney
General’s Office.  This Bureau is charged with enforcing
the Martin Act, New York State’s statutory securities laws.

 

The
Martin Act empowers the New York State Attorney General’s Office to investigate suspected fraudulent
activities in the offer, sale or purchase of securities. 
Additionally, the Martin Act confers  jurisdiction
upon the New York State Attorney General’s Office to commence civil and/or criminal prosecutions to
protect investors.  The Investor Protection Bureau also
oversees the required registration of brokers, dealers, securities sales persons and investment
advisors.

 

It is
important for New York State investors to understand that the Investor Protection Bureau is
not
required to pursue all leads relative to possible fraudulent activities in the sale of
securities.  We offer a free initial consultation to
investors who feel they have been victimized with the wrongful sale of securities, investments,
variable annuities and other financial products.

 

The Law Offices of
Timothy J. O’Connor is one of the only law firms practicing securities law in the Tri-City
Capital District of Albany, Schenectady and Troy.  We
also represent victimized investors throughout the rest of New York State, including Buffalo,
Binghamton, Syracuse, Watertown, Utica, Kingston, New York City/Manhattan, Long Island, and
everywhere in between, as well as in the surrounding states of Massachusetts, Vermont, New
Hampshire, Connecticut, and New Jersey.
