Enforcement 40 for 2013: Colleen P. Mahoney

“After departing the SEC following 15 year career that included positions in the senior ranks of the Division of Enforcement, the General Counsel and in the Chairman’s Office, Colleen Mahoney has forged an outstanding career in private practice, representing Fortune 500 companies and Wall Street banks in some of the most significant matters before the agency.  She has a well earned reputation as a great strategic thinker, and her instincts for the direction of a case and the reaction of the regulators to a set of circumstances are unerring.  Her ability to distill a complex set of circumstances and issues into a compelling narrative serves her clients well, and has earned her the respect of both the SEC Staff and the defense bar.”
