Last year, disgorgement accounted for $3.6 billion in monetary remedies for the US Securities and Exchange Commission, or three-quarters of all monetary remedies in SEC enforcement actions.  Two recent Supreme Court decisions – in 2017 and 2020 – sharply curtailed the SEC’s authority to pursue disgorgement.  To affirm the SEC’s powers, a new law on January 1, 2021 amended the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 to grant the SEC express statutory authority to pursue disgorgement of ill-gotten gains to prevent unjust enrichment.  The law also extended the applicable statute of limitations.  In this episode of Law, Policy & Markets, Milbank Global Project Energy & Infrastructure Finance partner Allan Marks and Milbank’s Global Head of Litigation & Arbitration, George Canellos, discuss the new law and its impact in detail. George brings extra insight, having served in a variety of senior positions at the SEC most recently as Co-Director of the SEC Division of Enforcement. Subscribe to other episodes of the “Law, Policy & Markets” podcast here.About the speakers:George S.

Like a fine musician performing a complex work before a discerning audience, practicing law at an elite level can be as much art as science. Today, we take a breather from complex business issues in this bonus episode of Law, Policy & Markets featuring Milbank Global Project, Energy & Infrastructure Finance partner Allan Marks and Litigation & Arbitration partner Alex Romain, who compare notes on how their years of classical piano training and passion for playing music inform their approaches to practicing law.

Ted Stevens, playing a key role in pursuing the exculpatory evidence that ultimately led to the senator’s exoneration.
