We have defended against lawsuits brought by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the Central, Southern, Eastern, and Northern Districts of California as well as in Utah. We have represented numerous clients in SEC investigations based in California, Washington, D.C., New York, Texas, Florida, Illinois, and Utah.
Such cases include alleged Ponzi schemes, insider trading, financial statement accuracy and restatements, and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act cases. Litigating and settling these cases, where careers and one’s life savings can be on the line, is dramatically different than handling regular litigation matters. Scott Vick’s approach often puts clients at ease and instills the confidence necessary to achieve a successful result.
In some ways, the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) has more power and wields more terrifying weapons than the SEC. Not only can the PCAOB ruin the careers of financial statement auditors over mere negligence in hindsight but can also impose eye-popping monetary sanctions for “noncooperation.”
Scott Vick has successfully navigated these treacherous waters for many clients and is one of the few lawyers that have handled this unique type of litigation through trial (called a “hearing”) and appeal. In addition, he advises auditors and registered firms on how to respond to PCAOB comment letters and handle other audit and auditor issues outside of litigation.
This simply refers to lawsuits filed by individuals or businesses, seeking to enforce a legal right or remedy. Often, the remedy sought is in the form of a money judgment, but it could be an order for other relief like the return of personal or real property.
At Vick Law Group, we have trial lawyers who are experienced courtroom attorneys. They can fully understand civil litigation and trial and have the skills and resources to get the best possible result in your case.

Corporation and Partnership Disputes
For many business owners, the greatest threat to a venture may not be the actions of your competitors, but rather a dispute with your business partners. If you are experiencing a serious dispute with your partner that is escalating and affecting your business operations, we suggest you implement immediate measures to secure your business and hard-earned equity interests.
At Vick Law Group, we assist small businesses and individuals within limited liability companies, joint ventures, and partnerships with various business dispute matters. We provide representation to start or defend litigation as well as help you develop strategies to avoid future disagreements.
