Webinar July 27, 2020

Liu v. SEC: Disgorgement Is Alive and … Well? The Future of Disgorgement for the SEC and the FTC

Event Detail

Kathleen Benway, Alex Brown, Elizabeth Gingold Clark, and Timothy Fitzmaurice will participate in this webinar hosted by the Practising Law Institute.

On June 22, the U.S. Supreme Court decided Liu v. SEC, which preserved SEC disgorgement but limited that key remedy in new, important ways that could impact not only the SEC but also the FTC. On July 9, the Court agreed to review two opinions from the Seventh and Ninth Circuits with contrasting views on whether the FTC Act’s authority to grant injunctions allows the agency to also demand restitution.

The webinar will address issues such as:

  • What are the limits of SEC disgorgement after Liu?
  • What questions remain unanswered about disgorgement after Liu?
  • Will Liu impact the FTC’s right to seek disgorgement or the amount the FTC can recover?
