Michael B. Himmel, Chair of the firm’s White Collar Criminal Defense group, speaks to Compliance Week about how a change in White House leadership and a new administration may affect the focus and priorities of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Anticipating a rise in inspections and enforcement activity, he says, “Under the Obama administration, there was an emphasis on investigating publicly traded companies and large Wall Street firms. There was a move away from that under the Trump administration. ... I suspect under [President-elect Joe Biden] there will be a move back toward that.”
