Securities Docket launched its annual conference, Securities Enforcement Forum, in Washington, D.C. in 2012, and added its West Coast counterpart, Securities Enforcement Forum West, in 2015. Today these two conferences are widely-regarded as the preeminent securities enforcement conferences in the world, bringing together many current and former senior SEC and DOJ officials, leading securities enforcement and white-collar attorneys, in-house counsel and compliance executives, and other top professionals in the field.

On both coasts, Securities Enforcement Forum seeks to deliver the most unique, thoughtful and enjoyable conference you will attend all year. Past events have included Keynotes by SEC Chairmen, Commissioners and Enforcement Directors, and historic moments such as our annual “Directors’ Panel” that has featured as many as seven current and former SEC Enforcement Directors on one stage.

Securities Enforcement Forum is held in the finest hotels in Washington, D.C. and San Francisco/Silicon Valley. Past venues have included the Mayflower Hotel and the Four Seasons Hotel in Washington, D.C., the Fairmont Hotel and Four Seasons Hotel in San Francisco, and the Four Seasons Hotel in Silicon Valley. These spectacular hotels provide attendees with five-star level meals and accommodations throughout the entire day.

In addition to a full day of presentations, discussion and networking opportunities with the leading attorneys and professionals in the securities enforcement field, attendees of Securities Enforcement Forum may also receive as many as 6.5 hours of CLE credit (approved in PA).
