Expert Witness Services
In today’s complex litigation, the need for a financial or regulatory expert is becoming increasing more frequent. Former CFTC Senior Trial Attorney Braden Perry and former Kansas Securities Commissioner Marc Wilson have both been retained as an expert witnesses in the area of commodity and securities regulation.
Mr. Perry has the unique tripartite experience of a white collar criminal defense and government compliance, investigations, and litigation attorney at a national law firm; a senior enforcement attorney at a federal regulatory agency; and the Chief Compliance Officer/Chief Regulatory Attorney of a global financial institution. He has extensive experience advising clients in federal inquiries and investigations, particularly in enforcement matters involving technological issues. Mr. Perry couples his technical knowledge and experience defending clients in front of federal agencies with a broad-based understanding of compliance from an institutional and regulatory perspective, and provides clear opinions in areas of compliance and enforcement.
Mr. Wilson, as the former Kansas Securities Commissioner, was both a regulator (like the Securities and Exchange Commission on the federal level), as well as a law enforcement officer, complete with armed special agents and the authority to arrest and prosecute suspects independently of the Kansas Attorney General or any District Attorney. Mr. Wilson has entered settlement agreements with Fortune 500 companies, gave congressional and legislative testimony on financial services issues, disciplined registered entities and persons, presided over administrative hearings, sought investor restitution for fraudulent activity, and prosecuted and imprisoned violators of Kansas securities laws. He was Commissioner during the adoption of the Dodd-Frank Act, and helped prepare the industry in Kansas for the transitions required by that federal law. Mr. Wilson’s duties also included educating the public to prevent securities fraud. As such, I have a unique perspective on the matter at hand.
Both Mr. Perry and Mr. Wilson serve as consulting and testifying experts.
