Yesterday, Securities Docket announced its inaugural “Enforcement 40”—our list of the 40 best and brightest securities enforcement defense lawyers in the business. Bruce Carton, Editor of Securities Docket, announced the names of this year’s Enforcement 40 at the conclusion of Securities Enforcement Forum 2013, held October 9, 2013 in Washington, D.C.
The lawyers in the Enforcement 40 for 2013 hail from many of the top firms in the world and have been key players—both in the public eye and behind-the-scenes—in the most significant SEC enforcement matters over the past few decades.

“As a publication focused squarely on securities enforcement issues, we set out to create a first-of-its-kind list that would celebrate the best practitioners in this highly-specialized area of law,” Carton said. “We were pleased to receive so many nominations for this inaugural list, and our list of the top candidates quickly grew to well over 150 names. I believe that the 40 men and women we ultimately selected for the Enforcement 40 for 2013 are true all-stars who are worthy of this special recognition.”
