“Global Securities Enforcement Issues: From Morrison to China,” D.C. Bar

Jenner & Block Partner Michael K. Lowman moderated a D.C. Bar panel that examined current issues in public and private securities law enforcement.  Called “Global Securities Enforcement Issues: From Morrison to China,” the seminar focused on the  implications of significant rulings, including the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2010 Morrison v. National Australia Bank Ltd. decision and the more recent SEC v. Benger decision.  Michael, the former Assistant Chief Litigation Counsel for the SEC, led the panel that included current and former SEC officials.  Held on May 9 in Washington, D.C., the event was covered by Bloomberg BNA’s Securities Law Daily and the SEC Today.

Michael is a member of the Securities Litigation, Class Action and Securities Practices, representing public companies and their officers and directors in SEC investigations, securities class actions, individual suits by securities holders and derivative actions. Before joining the firm, he served as assistant chief litigation counsel for the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Division of Enforcement.
