Before being licensed, I did some consulting work and had a website. The state apparently felt I was providing investment advice and issued a cease-and-desist order. I took down my website, stopped my consulting work and was hired by a brokerage firm and took my Series 7. Do I need to disclose the cease-and-desist on my U4?

Yes. If you’re already working as a registered rep, you need to file an amended U4 as soon as possible. Frankly, I’m surprised that FINRA didn’t find this when you applied for registration.
