The SEC is probing several major accounting firms and questioning whether these firms consulting activities and non-audit services undermine their ability to “conduct independent reviews of public companies’ financials.”
This investigation comes when the SEC is trying to implement new policies surrounding financial-market gatekeepers. While these firms are a necessary and integral piece of the financial markets, they still have a specific duty to remain unbiased under federal investor-protection laws.
If you or your firm is under investigation by the SEC, DOJ, or another government regulator, having experienced regulatory counsel represent you and your firm can make all the difference.
