Client Alert: Coffee & Conversation: Update On Securities Enforcement During COVID-19

On April 29, 2020, Eric Werner, the SEC’s Head of Enforcement in its Fort Worth Regional Office, joined Jessica Magee, a Thompson & Knight Partner, SEC alumnus, and former general counsel, to discuss securities enforcement, with a focus on agency and regional operations during COVID-19. Eric and Jessica’s virtual conversation from their homes became the first installment in what has, for Jessica and Thompson & Knight’s Securities and Government Enforcement group, turned into the recurring video series Coffee & Conversation. Since launching the series, Jessica and her Thompson & Knight colleagues have invited other subject-matter experts to share their insight on a variety of topics, including key considerations for audit committees, starting off on the right foot with the auditor in an internal investigation, and mitigating director fiduciary liability.
