Gray, McKegney Discuss New SEC Chair in New York Law Journal

June 05, 2017

O’Melveny partner Danielle Gray and counsel Patrick McKegney co-authored the article “What to Expect From the SEC’s New Cyber-Savvy Chair” for the June 5, 2017, edition of the New York Law Journal. With his confirmation as Securities and Exchange Commission Chair, Wall Street lawyer Jay Clayton is poised to become a central figure in a nation becoming ever more aware of cyber threats, the authors observe.

As the article puts it: “While the United States lacks a principal cybersecurity regulator, the SEC has implemented regulations in its purview and has begun to penalize companies that fail to comply.” The article also discusses legislation, regulatory guidance, and enforcement activity to look out for in the coming months as Clayton begins his tenure at the SEC.

Based in New York and Washington, DC, Gray draws on her high-level government experience and private practice background to counsel financial services institutions, health-care companies, educational institutions, and companies from a range of industries. New York-based McKegney focuses his practice primarily on complex civil litigation across a variety of industries.
