In a recent keynote speech, Co-Director of the US Securities and Exchange Commission’s Division of Enforcement Steven Peikin made it clear that the Division has made coronavirus (COVID-19) related enforcement matters a top priority and is dedicating significant time and resources to respond to such issues.
Co-Director Peikin, speaking on May 12 at the virtual Securities Enforcement Forum West 2020 Conference, also discussed the challenges of investigations being undertaken remotely, and noted the Division has seen an increase in whistleblower complaints and investigations.
