Former SEC Senior Counsel Discusses Enforcement Trends and Whistleblowers (Part Two of Two)

After serving as Senior Counsel in the SEC’s Division of Enforcement, investigating and prosecuting complex matters involving violations of the federal securities laws, Philip Moustakis has joined Seward & Kissel as counsel. The Hedge Fund Law Report recently interviewed Moustakis in connection with his move. This second article in our two-part series summarizes his thoughts on enforcement trends in general and in the digital asset space specifically, as well as on whistleblowers. The first article explored Moustakis’ experience in the government, as well as the regulatory approach to digital assets and blockchain.
