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 Investor Protection Bureau (IPB) as its Deputy Bureau Chief. This position is located in New York City and reports to the Bureau Chief.
IPB 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 protects the public from fraud and misrepresentation in the offering and sale of securities, commodities, franchises and other investment products. IPB is seeking to hire a Deputy Bureau Chief who can build on its storied history and robust authority to protect the interests of investors in today’s financial markets, including the growing risks in areas such as virtual currencies; addressing fraud in environmental, social, and governance (ESG) disclosures; the marketing of complex and speculative investment products to a broad range of retail investors; and the need for greater racial equity across the financial system.
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 coordination with outside agencies, including other Attorneys General, state securities regulators, and federal regulators.
