Duties Description The New York State Office of the Attorney General (OAG) is seeking an experienced attorney with a strong securities background to help lead the work of the Office’s Investor Protection Bureau (IPB), as its Deputy Bureau Chief. This position is located in New York City.
The Investor Protection Bureau is charged with enforcing the New York State securities law, commonly known as the Martin Act. The Martin Act gives the Attorney General broad law-enforcement powers to conduct investigations of suspected securities fraud. IPB’s Enforcement Section evaluates complaints, conducts civil investigations, and litigates matters pursuant to the Martin Act and New York’s Executive Law. In recent years, the section has investigated a wide range of conduct impacting the financial markets, including high frequency trading, Ponzi schemes, and foreign currency exchange. IPB also exercises significant regulatory authority through its Registration and Franchise Sections. Through these regulatory and enforcement powers, IPB protects the public from fraud and misrepresentation in the offering and sale of securities, commodities, franchises and other investment products.

The Deputy Bureau Chief will aid the Bureau Chief in the supervision of attorneys and support staff across the enforcement, registration and franchise sections. The Deputy Bureau Chief will also assist on broader IPB initiatives, which may involve the coordination with outside government agencies, including other Attorneys General, state securities regulators, federal regulators and NASAA.

Additional Comments Applicants from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply. The OAG is an equal opportunity employer.

Salary commensurate with experience.
