Milbank Litigation partner Sean Murphy will be speaking on a panel titled "Key Legal and Regulatory Issues: Asset Management" at the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association's (SIFMA) Compliance & Legal Society Boston Regional Seminar on May 1, 2018. The one-day seminar will feature presentations by leading securities regulators and industry professionals.
Mr. Murphy's practice focuses on complex securities matters, defending some of the largest financial institutions in the country in multi-jurisdictional class action and derivative litigation under state and federal securities laws, including the Securities Act of 1933, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and the Investment Company Act of 1940. He represents investment advisers and mutual fund boards in regulatory proceedings and litigation matters. Mr. Murphy was named The American Lawyer's "Litigator of the Week" following a notable defense on behalf of AXA in the first "manager-of-managers" case to go to trial under 36(b) of the Investment Company Act.
