For the third consecutive time, BakerHostetler Partners Jonathan Barr and John Carney have been named to the Securities Docket “Enforcement 40” list of the publication’s proclaimed “40 best and brightest securities enforcement defense professionals in the industry.” The lawyers on the list come from the top firms in the world and have played pivotal roles in defending corporations and individuals in some of the most noteworthy SEC matters of the past 10 years. Barr and Carney, who have collectively tried more than 25 cases to verdict, appeared on the inaugural list in 2013 and again in 2017, the previous two times the “Enforcement 40” list was compiled.

According to Securities Docket, “this list honors 40 securities professionals who not only have the right stuff to handle bet-the-company matters, but are also the kind of defensive specialists critical to have on speed-dial should the SEC’s Division of Enforcement come calling.” This year’s list was announced on Oct. 28, 2020.

Barr and Carney are also ranked in Chambers USA for Litigation: White Collar Crime & Government Investigations, as well as The Legal 500.
