Enforcement 40 for 2013: Lawrence Iason

“One of the country’s leading securities enforcement and white collar defense attorneys, Lawrence Iason, is one who you rarely read about. That is because while well-known for high-profile representations, many of his greatest successes are for clients who never become known to the public and that is the person you want on speed dial when the SEC Enforcement Division comes calling! These clients – financial institutions, major corporations and their senior corporate officers, and prominent individuals – are often embroiled in investigations by the SEC, the DOJ, and FINRA. Larry’s career spans private practice and public service: as an Assistant Special Prosecutor in the Watergate Special Prosecution Force, as head of the SEC’s NY Regional Office, and now as a partner with the law firm Morvillo Abramowitz.”
