Disgorgement in SEC Enforcement Actions After Liu (10/14/2020)

Program Number: 30233 Presenter: Joseph Gallagher, Esq.

This summer’s decision in SEC v. Liu saw the Supreme Court answer a question that had been on the minds of every white collar securities litigator (and their clients) since 2017: does the SEC have the power to disgorge the ill-gotten gains of defendants found to have committed securities fraud?

In this webinar, we will address: • The history of disgorgement as an equitable remedy; • How the Supreme Court’s 2017 decision in Kokesh put the availability of disgorgement in SEC enforcement actions, which had been sacrosanct for years, squarely in play; • How Liu erected guardrails around the SEC’s use of disgorgement to maintain its equitable nature; and • What the future might look like for litigating remedies in SEC
