A Nov. 18 FundFire article titled “More Aggressive Enforcement Era Likely under Biden SEC, Attorneys Say” discusses how asset management firms will have to adapt to new priorities set out by a Joe Biden-selected chair of the SEC after the current chairman, Jay Clayton, steps down at the end of the year. The article features remarks from litigation & enforcement partner and Securities & Futures Enforcement practice co-leader Dan O’Connor.

“In many respects, when the Democrat-controlled commission comes in, there’s going to be a bit of a change in tone and priority and how things are announced,” Dan said. “Where there is a perhaps Wall street [and] big bank focus, corporate responsibility gets a lot more attention.”
