Navigating the lore - and detecting the myths - of how the SEC works can be challenging. There are many more Offices and Divisions than most realize. Join a group of experts that have worked at high levels within the SEC:

  • Betsy Murphy, SEC Secretary
  • Alex Cohen, Partner, Latham & Watkins and former Deputy Chief of Staff for SEC Chair Chris Cox
  • Scott Kimpel, Partner, Hunton & Williams and former Counsel to SEC Commissioner Troy Paredes

Among the topics of this program are:

  • What the SEC Commissioners actually do and how they fit into the SEC's org chart
  • Overview of the Sunshine Act, which bears on how the Commission meets - and how to communicate with SEC Commissioners
  • How Enforcement cases are deliberated
  • How rulemakings come together, from kernel of an idea to proposal to adoption
  • What are the Offices of General Counsel, Secretary, Legislative Affairs, Public Affairs, etc.
