  • Gerald Hodgkins: DC-based partner in the Securities Litigation and Enforcement Practice and former Associate Director for the SEC, who oversaw more than 100 enforcement matters, including the largest penalty in SEC history for issuer reporting and disclosure fraud and the largest settlement involving Section 304 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.
  • Anne Termine: DC-based leader of the Derivatives Enforcement Team in the Global Futures and Derivatives Practice and former Chief Trial Attorney in the CFTC Division of Enforcement, who was responsible for leading investigations and litigation regarding alleged violations of laws dealing with futures, derivatives, and commodities, as well as those involving the manipulation and false reporting of LIBOR and Euribor, amounting to over $2.8 billion in penalties.
