Receiving a FINRA 8210 request or a subpoena from the SEC is often an unsettling event. Sometimes this is just the beginning of what may turn into a Wells Notice and then a full-blown disciplinary proceeding. Other times, you may just be a witness or have relevant documents. Either way, the smart move is to retain experienced counsel as soon as you see any signs of potential trouble.
