Securities Enforcement

Our attorneys work to provide our clients effective representation throughout all stages of securities enforcement, from inquiry to resolution. We have worked to build relationships of mutual respect with securities regulators and pride ourselves on our ability to convince the SEC either not to take action or to reduce the nature and scope of the charges. We have defended clients in investigations, enforcement proceedings, and examinations by the SEC, DOJ, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Financial Regulatory Authority (FINRA), Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB), stock exchanges, and state securities enforcement agencies. Additionally, Jackson Walker offers the guidance of several former, management-level Assistant U.S. Attorneys who supervised and tried white collar matters for almost ten years.
