Law for Traders from Lawyers who Trade®
Ziliak Law was built with the needs of financial industry participants in mind. When broker-dealers, commodity trading advisors and pool operators, hedge funds, investment advisers, and proprietary trading groups have legal questions, Ziliak Law provides solutions that reflect experience with the business, legal, operational, and regulatory sides of the financial industry.
The financial industry is complex and dynamic. Industry participants contend with restrictions from statutes, regulators, exchanges, and self-regulatory organizations and thus frequently have need for legal assistance. But most attorneys who offer advice on these issues have little experience with trading strategies, mathematical models, and computer algorithms — the world in which modern advisors and trading companies operate. Because many of our team have worked in the industry in a variety of roles, we understand the business of trading, the complexities of managing money, and the importance of regulatory compliance. Our team’s extensive experience with drafting policies and procedures, structuring private placements, responding to regulatory inquiries, and handling dispute resolution helps ensure effective legal solutions for our clients.
