Tom Potter Featured in Corporate Counsel on "Noteworthy Trends at the SEC"

Firm News


In an article published by Corporate Counsel on July 30, 2015, Tom Potter gives insight into three noteworthy trends at the SEC. The rise of Mary Jo White as the SEC chairwoman has created some changing dynamics at the commission, and led to questions about what's coming next. The first trend worth watching is more enforcement on infractions big and small. Potter explained that while the theory is playing out, it may not be in the way one might expect. The second trend is the SEC coming down on the gatekeepers including attorneys, auditors and compliance officers, in addition to the companies "That is indicative perhaps of the SEC's response to the criticism that they're not doing enough to go after individuals," said Potter. The final trend is that some commissioners are getting testy. The commissioners don't always agree internally on the agency's actions.
