SEC’s Grewal shares views on ‘Five Principles of Effective Cooperation’

Gurbir Grewal SEC 3x2

Gurbir Grewal spoke to the topic during remarks delivered at a securities enforcement event last week. The SEC published the transcript of the speech this week.

“As numerous recent enforcement matters have shown, there are real benefits to parties that cooperate with commission investigations,” Grewal said. “These benefits can affect both the charges (e.g., declinations) and the remedies (e.g., reduced or zero civil penalties) the division may recommend and that the commission may ultimately impose.”
