The Attorney General is the chief legal officer for the State of New York as well as the people’s lawyer. The Attorney General’s office plays a crucial role as a regulator of numerous aspects of the real estate and business marketplace. The AG also has access to some of the most powerful laws in the nation, including the Executive Law and the Martin Act—New York’s blue sky law that regulates aspects of the real estate, financial and consumer industries, with powers to investigate and prosecute civil and criminal wrongdoing.
Join us on Wednesday, September 12, as we discuss “The Attorney General’s office—A discussion about New York’s top real estate and business regulator.” Hear from three former AG executives who regulated the real estate, financial and consumer industries, and oversaw civil and criminal enforcement. This discussion will also serve as a timely overview of the role of the Attorney General’s office on the eve of the primary election for the next Attorney General for the State of New York.
