He is the former Chief Litigation Counsel of a financial services company and managed the entire portfolio of litigation for the company’s four wholly-owned subsidiary broker-dealers. 

Mr. Goselin focuses his practice on securities litigation and the representation of registered representatives, broker-dealers, investment advisor representatives and investment advisors in arbitrations, litigation and regulatory matters before the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and state regulators.  From the unique perspective of a chief litigation counsel seeing the entire litigation portfolio of four broker-dealers, Mr. Goselin has experienced the entire array of legal difficulties that broker-dealers and individual advisors may face from the routine customer suitability claim to a complex ponzi scheme to the challenges of defending matters before state and national regulators in investigations and routine examinations. 

In addition, Mr. Goselin has substantial experience representing public and private companies in class action litigation, shareholder and derivative litigation, deal protection litigation, franchise/franchisee litigation, insurance agent, accountant and legal professional liability litigation and general commercial litigation matters.  He also represents businesses and financial institutions in regulatory and litigation matters brought by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

Mr. Goselin also has substantial experience in defending claims involving ERISA and non-ERISA fiduciary matters.  Mr. Goselin's experience includes cases concerning ERISA fiduciaries in defense of DOL investigations and litigation involving 401(k) management, multi-employer pension liability and breach of fiduciary duty claims.

In his cyber practice, Mr. Goselin advises and represents businesses in a variety of matters relating to data security and privacy laws.  He has extensive experience helping businesses respond to data breaches and comply with notification laws involving all kinds of information, but with particular expertise with regard to the financial data maintained by financial services institutions.  He also represents businesses in litigation matters related to data security and privacy, including lawsuits under federal laws such as the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, as well as investigations into privacy practices by agencies like FINRA, the SEC and the Federal Trade Commission.
