PLI's Enforcement 2021: Perspectives from Government Agencies

Joan McKown, a partner in Jones Day's Securities Litigation & SEC Enforcement Practice, and Mark Rasmussen, a partner in the Firm's Business & Tort Litigation Practice, will be among the speakers at PLI's "Enforcement 2021: Perspectives from Government Agencies" webinar on May 7.

The Biden administration is bringing new leadership to nearly all of the federal authorities that regulate the business community, including both civil enforcement agencies and federal prosecutors. This program brings together panels of senior staff from the various federal and state enforcement and regulatory agencies. Over the years these agencies have included the Department of Justice, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, FINRA, New York State Department of Financial Services, leading U.S. Attorney's Offices, U.S. Department of the Treasury, U.S. Department of State, Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Moderated by law firm enforcement practitioners, the panels will discuss new agency priorities, how the agencies are working together, and offer best practices for working with the government in today's continually changing enforcement environment.


  • Enforcement Priorities
  • Swaps and Derivatives and Market Enforcement: Trends and Lessons from the Past
  • The Cybersecurity Landscape: Working with Law Enforcement
  • Cryptocurrencies: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
  • Legal and Policy Developments in Enforcement
  • Ethical Issues that Arise When Working with Government Agencies


Those who represent, as in-house or outside counsel, businesses and individuals that need to comply with financial regulatory requirements, businesses and individuals that are working hard to avoid regulatory and enforcement scrutiny, and businesses and individuals that, for whatever reason, find themselves under regulatory and enforcement scrutiny will benefit from this timely program.
