ABA CLE in the CITY: Views from West Coast DOJ and SEC Leadership on Current Priorities and Recent Developments

Hosted By: American Bar Association

Bay Area residents, join Fenwick's Michael Dicke for the latest on securities enforcement during the innovative San Francisco CLE in the City Series held at the start of the 2019 ABA Annual Meeting on the morning of August 8.

The Department of Justice and the Securities Exchange Commission continue to make almost daily headlines about their continuing high-profile investigations and enforcement actions. Particularly noteworthy are the West Coast offices of the United States Attorney’s Office and the SEC in San Francisco.

This panel, moderated by Fenwick's Michael Dicke and featuring U.S. Attorney David Anderson and SEC Assistant Director Monique Winkler, will explore current hot topics in the securities enforcement space, important recent cases, and the innovative approaches being taken by the San Francisco SEC and DOJ offices, some of which are causing concern among defense lawyers that the rights of investigatory targets will not be adequately protected.
