Paul Huey-Burns


Paul Huey-Burns is one of the nation’s leading advocates on behalf of individuals and businesses involved in investigations by the SEC or other securities regulators. He has an outstanding record of convincing the authorities to resolve investigations in ways that have minimal impact on his clients’ businesses. In many situations, he has convinced those authorities to terminate investigations without any public actions against his clients. The Best Lawyers in America, Chambers USA, Washingtonian Magazine and other publications have recognized him as one of the nation’s leading securities enforcement defense attorneys. More importantly, scores of his investment adviser, broker-dealer and public company clients attest to his skills.

His clients and peers recognize Paul because he has achieved superior results. This includes matters where he has been involved from the inception - when he has had the opportunity to participate in developing the investigative record - and where he has been retained after an investigation has reached the point that the authorities have notified a company or an individual of their intent to proceed with an enforcement action.

Paul is fiercely committed to his clients. Chambers USA notes that he is “admired for his subject matter expertise and responsiveness” and commends his “ability to communicate complex legal issues to non-attorneys in an easily understandable manner.” Ethisphere Magazine has included him in its list of “Attorneys Who Matter,” recognizing him for his work in securities compliance.
