Mountain View, CA (October 30, 2017) – Fenwick & West today announced that securities enforcement co-chair and litigation partner Michael Dicke has been named to Securities Docket’s “Enforcement 40,” a list of the 40 leading securities enforcement defense attorneys in the country.
Dicke is the only San Francisco and Silicon Valley-based lawyer—and one of only three on the West Coast—to be recognized.
According to the Securities Docket publication, the Enforcement 40 recognizes “the 40 best and brightest securities enforcement defense lawyers in the business,” and are the “defensive specialists critical to have on speed-dial should the SEC’s Division of Enforcement come calling.” The honor is based on nominations, input from numerous senior lawyers in the field and independent research.
Prior to joining Fenwick, Dicke spent over 15 years with the SEC, most recently serving as the associate regional director for enforcement in the SEC’s San Francisco regional office, where he supervised all of the office’s investigations and litigation.
Dicke also is recognized for expertise in regulatory enforcement and securities litigation in the Best Lawyers 2018 guide and the 2017 Legal 500 guide. He currently serves as co-chair of the American Bar Association’s Securities Enforcement subcommittee.
Dicke and the other honorees were announced on October 26, 2017, in Washington, D.C. at the Securities Enforcement Forum 2017. See the complete “Enforcement 40” list.
