AG Platkin Launches Office to Combat Securities and Financial Crimes

Attorney General Matthew J. Platkin today announced the creation of a new office within the Division of Criminal Justice that will focus on pursuing major financial crimes, including securities fraud, and holding white collar criminals accountable for their wrongdoing.

The newly created Office of Securities Fraud and Financial Crimes Prosecutions (OSFFCP) will enhance existing efforts to prosecute financial crimes by creating a dedicated office charged specifically with investigating and prosecuting crimes that undermine the fairness and integrity of our financial systems, exploit investors, and prey on vulnerable individuals across the State of New Jersey and beyond.
