Enforcement 40 for 2013: Cheryl J. Scarboro

Cheryl Scarboro is the consummate SEC enforcement professional.  As the first-ever Chief of the SEC Enforcement Division’s FCPA Specialized Unit, Cheryl has more experience on FCPA matters than just about any practitioner around.  She is one of the few SEC enforcement lawyers who also spent time in the executive suite (she was counselor to Chairman Arthur Levitt) so she carries with her a particularly unique perspective. During her 20+ years at the SEC, Cheryl rose quietly through the ranks in enforcement serving as a branch chief, assistant director and associate director – gaining valuable front line experience along the way.   Her clients praise her meticulous approach to serving them, together with her sound judgment and know-how.  Universally liked as well as respected by SEC enforcement staff, Cheryl’s tough but fair reputation makes her the first choice of corporate boards and CEOs as a trusted adviser and independent voice.”
