The Fordham Journal of Corporate and Financial Law will be publishing an article written by Adam Gana and Michael Villacres. The article is entitled Blue Skies for America in the Securities Industry… Except for New York: New York’s Martin Act and the Private Right of Action. The article addresses the origins and legislative history of New York’s securities regulations and compares the regulations to that of other states. The article then explores the disadvantages to New York’s retail investing public. Finally and most importantly, the article recommends changes to the law that will truly help protect investors in the state of New York.
The article will appear in the summer 2014 edition of the Fordham Journal.
