This week we highlight NYU's SEC Enforcement Activity against Public Companies and Their Subsidiaries - Midyear FY 2016 Update. NYU Pollack Center for Law & Business and Cornerstone Research analyzed data in the Securities Enforcement Empirical Database (SEED). The report contains key findings for the number of filings, the classification of allegations, the enforcement venue, the timing of settlement and monetary settlements for a research sample of 364 public company defendants. The research concludes that the SEC has rapidly increased filings against public companies within the U.S. and their subsidiaries during the period from fiscal year 2010 and the first half of fiscal year 2016.
