DC Bar Seminar Will Review Developments In SEC Enforcement

Sunday, June 1, 2008 - 01:00

The DC Bar Association is planning a CLE seminar titled Remedies in SEC Enforcement Actions: Survey and Current Issues.

The program will take place on Monday, June 9 from 6 to 9:15 p.m. at the DC Bar Conference Center, 1250 H Street, NW, Washington, DC.

This course is designed to help participants better understand the wide range of legal and equitable remedies available in SEC enforcement actions and to learn about the current policies and practices of the Commission and SEC staff as they make use of those remedies. This class will review the traditional injunctive remedy, including ancillary relief such as special masters, compliance consultants, undertakings and asset freezes.

The featured speaker, Gregory Bruch of Foley Lardner, will discuss the considerations that are present for assessing disgorgement and civil penalties, and when officer and director bars may be sought. He also will explore administrative remedies, including the interplay of cease-and-desist proceedings, 15(b)(6) proceedings, and Rule 102(e) proceedings against licensed professionals.
