FINRA Letter of Acceptance, Waiver, and Consent
Louis Kreisberg and FINRA entered into a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver, and Consent (“AWC”) on June 3, 2021.
On May 29, 2020, in connection with an investigation into potential undisclosed private securities transactions, FINRA sent a request to Kreisberg for documents and information pursuant to FINRA Rule 8210.
Kreisberg initially responded to FINRA’s request, providing documents and information. However, certain documents were not produced, and after multiple follow up discussions, Kreisberg refused to produce those documents.
On April 27, 2021, Kreisberg acknowledged receipt of FINRA’s request and indicated that he would not produce the information or documents requested, and would not participate further in the investigation.
By refusing FINRA’s request to produce the information and documents pursuant to FINRA Rule 8210, Kreisberg violated FINRA Rules 8210 and 2010.
FINRA Rules 8210 and 2010
FINRA Rule 8210(a)(1) states, in relevant part, that FINRA may require a person subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction “to provide information orally, in writing, or electronically . . . with respect to any matter involved in [a FINRA] investigation[.]” FINRA Rule 8210(c) further states that “[n]o . . . person shall fail to provide information . . . pursuant to this Rule.”
A violation of FINRA Rule 8210 is also a violation of FINRA Rule 2010, which requires member firms and their associated persons to “observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade.”
