Banking, Finance, & Securities Law

The Law Offices of David Coates is a trusted advisor for litigation and regulatory enforcement matters. When disputes arise – in the enforcement, customer and employment context – we are skilled negotiators, using every available resource to protect our clients and minimize disruption to their business. When litigation is unavoidable, however, we are tenacious advocates with time-tested experience before state and federal courts and regulatory bodies, and in a broad range of arbitration and mediation settings.

Leveraging decades of collective experience in the financial services sector, our firm was established to help clients respond to this rapidly changing environment and highly complex marketplace.  Mr. Coates has broad experience in the banking, finance and securities area of law.  He has worked for several broker/dealers and has helped companies raise capital through private placements as well as public offerings.
