Women Lawyers Initiative – Securities Law CLE
On Friday, March 27, 2015, the Women Lawyers Initiative hosted a continuing legal education seminar on the latest in securities law. Our panelists were Tracy Nichols of Holland & Knight, Eric Bustillo, Regional Director of the SEC’s Miami Regional Office, Bruce Reinhart of McDonald Hopkins and Russell Koonin, Senior Trial Counsel in the SEC’s Miami Regional Office. The panelists spoke on a wide array of topics, including the latest Supreme Court and Circuit Court decisions affecting both plaintiff and defendants in securities cases, the SEC’s Whistleblower program, the inner workings on how an SEC case proceeds from investigation to the filing of the Complaint, and multiple issues affecting defendants and their counsel when faced with an enforcement action by the SEC, particularly when faced with potential parallel criminal charges by the Department of Justice. The panelists then fielded several questions from the audience. We look forward seizing the momentum of this CLE and establishing a securities division within the South Florida Chapter of the FBA. Thanks to our panelists and thanks to everyone who attended!
