Securities Law

FindLaw’s Securities Law section reviews the basics of this complicated area of law. Securities are the underpinning of the U.S. financial system, since most people invest their hard earned cash in securities when saving for the future. The articles in the “Securities Law Basics” section explain what a “security” is, how it is used in everyday life, and the different kinds of litigation that can arise over securities. In the “Securities Resources” section, you will find information on the different agencies responsible for regulating the securities industry, the information these agencies produce, and how to use this information to protect your investments.
