SEC Defense Attorneys - Securities Lawyers

The SEC’s Enforcement Division conducts investigations pursuant to formal Orders of Investigation that authorize the staff of the Enforcement Division to seek the production of relevant information, either in the form of documents or witness testimony. Although the SEC does not have prosecutoral powers, it often refers cases to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for criminal investigation. At times, the SEC and U.S. Attorney’s Office may also coordinate their investigations.
