SEC investigation and enforcement
The SEC devotes significant resources to investigation and enforcement. Securities issuers are subject to increased scrutiny, and public companies can expect to see more reviews and comment letters about their SEC filings. Proactively avoiding SEC investigations and enforcement action requires effective compliance advice and strong compliance programs. When investigation and enforcement actions do occur, our attorneys work with public companies, corporate insiders and investors throughout an SEC investigation or inquiry. We manage each aspect of the investigation, from responding to document requests to handling administrative proceedings, informal inquiries, formal investigations and court enforcement actions.
