Jessie Gabriel Comments on Drop in SEC Administrative Proceedings

News / July 5, 2017

Partner Jessie Gabriel is quoted in an article published July 5, 2017, by Compliance Reporter. The article, “SEC Faces Supreme Court on Administrative Proceedings,” discusses a decline in the number of proceedings the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is bringing before its administrative law judges (ALJs) as the controversial practice now appears set to be considered by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Gabriel told the publication, “It does seem like, speaking generally, there’s been a bit of a shift in attitude. The ALJs are aware of the controversy and the general accusation that the proceedings themselves are set up unfairly.”
