The National Law Journal: The Road Ahead - What to Expect From the Biden Administration on the Regulatory Front

February 01, 2021

O’Melveny State Attorneys General Litigation and Investigations Group co-chair Daniel Suvor told The National Law Journal that regulatory enforcement “is going to significantly increase,” under the incoming Biden administration. “I don’t think that’s going out on a limb.”

Suvor previously served as Vice President-elect Kamala Harris’ chief of policy and senior counsel during her time as California attorney general.

“Across the federal bureaucracy, there is an expectation that Biden’s regulatory and enforcement agencies will take a more broadly focused consumer protection lane. Regulatory action is predicted to increase at the US Securities and Exchange Commission and elsewhere,” the publication wrote. “Meanwhile, the Justice Department is expected to bring renewed vigor to civil rights litigation and environmental enforcement, which had gone largely dormant during the Trump era.”
