SCHOEPPL LAW, P.A., based in Boca Raton, Florida, is a boutique securities enforcement and business litigation firm with a national federal trial and appellate practice which focuses on regulatory enforcement in SEC, FINRA, DOJ, CFTC, FTC, Florida DBPR, and other SRO matters, complex federal and state court commercial litigation on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants, high stakes litigation and arbitration matters on behalf of investors in selected cases, broker-dealer and investment adviser defense, and white collar criminal defense arising out of securities enforcement matters. The Firm is led by a former senior federal prosecutor with the SEC with over 100 reported decisions and is comprised of seasoned litigators who graduated from Harvard Law School, Stanford Law School, Emory University School of Law, and the University of Miami School of Law.
Carl F. Schoeppl prosecuted some of the most notable securities fraud cases on behalf of the SEC in federal courts for over half a decade throughout the Southeastern United States at that time. Significantly, Mr. Schoeppl never lost a case as a prosecutor for the SEC. Some of the most important enforcement cases Mr. Schoeppl handled at the SEC included, among others, a $33 million financial fraud case involving the failed Commonwealth Savings & Loan Association of Florida (“Commonwealth”), a $27 million Ponzi scheme case involving the defunct Omni Capital Group, Ltd. (“Omni Capital”) and its founder, Thomas R. Mullens (“Mullens”), and a $31 million asset overstatement case against a public company named A.B.E. Industrial Holdings, Inc. (“ABE”) regarding a fraudulent mortgage on a French vineyard. In both the Commonwealth and Omni Capital cases, Mr. Schoeppl assisted the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida in parallel criminal prosecutions that resulted in indictments and convictions of the perpetrators of the respective alleged fraudulent schemes. In connection with the SEC’s case against Mullens, Mr. Schoeppl received the FBI’s Service in the Public Interest Award for assistance he provided in the successful parallel criminal prosecution of Mullens by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida. In the criminal case, Mullens original term of imprisonment for orchestrating the alleged massive Ponzi scheme for more than $27 million upon 150 victims was 33 years and 9 months which, at the time, was one of the stiffest sentences ever imposed upon a white-collar criminal in South Florida.
