Former SEC Branch Chief
Recovering investment losses
Defending financial professionals
As an SEC Enforcement Branch Chief, Lisa Braganca conducted and supervised investigations of trading practices, fraudulent offerings, insider trading, churning, financial/accounting fraud, unsuitability, and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violations. She has recovered millions of dollars in investor losses and insured losses for individuals and businesses. She has saved the careers of financial and other professionals involved in regulatory investigations.
As an investor and fiduciary, I have worked with Lisa in several capacities over the last 15 years. Lisa’s diverse background from her tenure as an attorney for the SEC, and in private practice – working on both sides of the aisle – make her one of the most thorough, realistic and expedient lawyers in the Chicagoland area. As a lawyer who fully understands the encompassing legal process, Lisa’s business acumen allows her to deftly navigate each situation that is truly in the best interest of her clients – not the clock.
Celiza was a great help to me in the course of working to resolve my problem. She was very patient, explaining in detail what was happening and what would follow, doing it in a very professional and friendly manner. Working with her helped me through a very difficult situation.
Lisa Braganca helped me through a very toxic employment transition that was one of the most uncomfortable experiences of my entire life. In the interest of ‘maintaining confidentiality’ through the settlement and legalese my former employer was asking me to sign, having Lisa at my side allowed me to sleep at night. As a single mom with a busy career, I strongly recommend contacting Lisa when believe the odds are clearly stacked against you. She is a lifesaver.
