Covington regularly represents clients in high-stakes securities and derivatives enforcement and litigation matters. Our litigators have extensive experience handling cases in courtrooms across the country, before arbitration panels, and in bankruptcy court.
Covington represents companies and individuals in every major area, including complex securities and other instruments, shareholder class actions and derivative litigation, and transactional disputes.
Covington’s securities and commodities enforcement attorneys regularly represent clients before the SEC, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), regional exchanges, and state securities regulators.
When regulatory investigations are accompanied by parallel criminal investigations, we are exceptionally well-equipped to handle those as well. Our committed group of senior litigators include a former head of the SEC Enforcement Division's nationwide litigation program, a nine-year veteran of the CFTC leads our commodity regulatory and enforcement practice, a former head of the SEC San Francisco District Office, and former federal prosecutors in California, New York, and Washington who prosecuted criminal securities fraud cases.
We also conduct internal investigations, design corporate compliance programs, and conduct compliance training at many of the world's largest corporations.
Covington's Securities/Derivatives Litigation and Enforcement group is not only widely recognized for litigating and winning high-profile securities cases, but also for devising creative legal strategies to resolve matters long before they draw public scrutiny.
