FORA.tv Speaker - Colleen Mahoney
Colleen P. Mahoney, a partner in Skadden's Washington, D.C. office, heads the firm's Securities Enforcement and Compliance practice, and regularly represents corporations, their officers, directors and employees in Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and other law enforcement investigations. She also has represented auditors and audit firms, hedge funds, national stock exchanges and officers at these exchanges.
Ms. Mahoney assists management and boards of directors performing internal investigations, often advising clients on preventive and remedial measures before and after securities-related issues arise.
Prior to joining Skadden, Ms. Mahoney spent 15 years in increasingly senior positions with the SEC, serving as acting general counsel of the agency and as deputy director of the division of enforcement -- the second-in-command and lead administrator of the 300-plus attorney enforcement division. During her tenure at the SEC, Ms. Mahoney helped manage a civil law enforcement program that initiated more than 400 new cases a year. Those cases involved a wide range of issues, including financial fraud and disclosure, auditor independence, mutual fund sales practices, derivatives and insider trading.
