Eva Ciko Carman

Eva Ciko Carman is Co-Head of the firm’s securities enforcement group. She has over two-decades of experience handling most of the major types of Wall Street enforcement actions in recent history. Her practice is nationwide. She has had recent cases in five of the SEC’s regional offices and the Washington office. In addition, she has handled two of the most high-profile cases to come out of the CFTC in recent years – Sentinel and One World. Her high-profile successes include the dismissal of claims against one of the central figures in the credit crisis cases – the former head of Countrywide Home Loans. Her recent non-public successes include complete defense of a portfolio manager of a prominent hedge fund in an expert network insider trading case. As a result of her years in the industry and track record of success, she is well-regarded by hedge fund managers, investment advisors and private equity firms, who not only seek her counsel in investigations and litigated matters, but also for regulatory guidance on matters relating to insider trading, custody, anti-corruption, design and implementation of compliance programs intended to address complex and novel trading and business issues. She has also been tapped to conduct internal investigations, the most recent of which was of a commodities broker that was under investigation for complex issues associated with accounting disclosures. Throughout these matters, Eva has demonstrated the skills that make her a sought-after counselor and advocate: respect of the regulators, sensitivity to the nuances of working in a politically charged atmosphere, and a deep understanding of her clients’ industry and businesses. In addition, Eva is a national conference speaker, most recently speaking to hundreds of industry professionals at the September 2012 Ascendant Compliance Management Conference on the blurring lines between SEC examinations and enforcement actions. Other recent presentations have covered topics including special issues private equity firms and hedge funds face with registration and examination, what China-based US Listed companies need to know about US SEC enforcement actions and ethical issues associated with internal investigations.
