At Securities Enforcement Forum 2017, Securities Docket will announce its first-ever update to the “Enforcement 40”— our list of the 40 best and brightest securities enforcement defense professionals in the industry. Specifically, this list honors 40 securities professionals who not only have the right stuff to handle bet-the-company matters, but are also the kind of defensive specialists critical to have on speed-dial should the SEC’s Division of Enforcement come calling.
Securities Docket created its inaugural “Enforcement 40” in 2013. The list is guided by a simple question: Who would you hire if you, your company or a family member was faced with an important SEC enforcement matter?
In addition, there are three basic requirements:
- Candidates for the Enforcement 40 must be in the private sector for at least the past two years.
- Candidates for the Enforcement 40 must have a practice that is at last 50% dedicated to SEC enforcement defense work.
- Candidates for the Enforcement 40 must be attorneys (as opposed to accountants, economists or other experts)
2017 marks the first update we have made to this list of the 40 best lawyers in the business.
If you would like to nominate someone for the Enforcement 40, please let us know in 200 words or less why your nominee should be included in this extraordinary group. Please email your nomination to firstname.lastname@example.org with the Subject line “Enforcement 40”. The deadline for submissions is Friday, September 8, 2017 and we will announce the 40 honorees at Securities Enforcement Forum 2017, which will take place on Thursday, October 26, 2017 at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C.
