Russell C. Weigel, III, Esq.
Author, Speaker, Attorney and former SEC Attorney
Mr. Weigel, a Florida resident, has been practicing securities law since 1990. Capital For Keeps is a product of his government regulatory and private practice of law experiences. These private sector experiences include fifteen years of advising public and private company clients on capital raising transactions, preparing SEC reports and registration statement filings, taking companies public, counseling on general corporate and securities regulatory compliance matters, and defending corporate executives and financial professionals involved in shareholder/investor corporate litigation and securities litigation claims, securities arbitrations, and SEC, FINRA, and state securities enforcement matters, among other types of representations.
Mr. Weigel’s perspective is also founded on his more than ten years’ of experience working for the Securities and Exchange Commission enforcing the federal securities laws as an attorney. Mr. Weigel supervised and conducted investigations and litigated civil injunctive and administrative proceedings nationwide on behalf of the SEC, most involving allegations of fraud, sales of unregistered non-exempt securities, or regulatory compliance violations by stock promoters, public companies, broker dealers, investment advisers, and stock transfer agents, among others. Mr. Weigel also supervised investigations and litigated cases involving securities issuers’ Ponzi schemes and false financial reporting.
