We are pleased to have someone of Charley’s caliber and experience to lead our editorial operations
San Francisco (Vocus) July 30, 2009
Charles Seavey has been named editor of the newly launched weekly legal journal Securities Enforcement Reporter, according to publisher, Douglas Slain.
"We are pleased to have someone of Charley’s caliber and experience to lead our editorial operations," said Slain. "Not only will he accurately cover the topical field of securities enforcement, but he can provide relevant commentary on SEC, CFTC and state-level proceedings."
Seavey began his career in business, law and journalism with a BA in English at Stanford University and an MBA at The University of Chicago Booth School of Business, after which he was an analyst or portfolio manager at several hedge funds, including Soros Fund Management.
Seavey spent the dot-com years advising and financing start-up companies. He subsequently became interested in investigative journalism and through accounting analysis discovered fraud at the Halliburton Company, which led to a New York Times article, an SEC investigation and class action suits.
While working as a forensic accountant for plaintiffs attorneys on the Halliburton case, he became interested in the law and earned a JD at the University of California, Berkeley.
He has since developed and authored numerous original securities class action complaints, served as CFO of a private company, and written on topics in international law and business, including The Anomalous Lack of an International Bankruptcy Court, which was published in the Berkeley Journal of International Law.
In addition to his securities litigation experience on the plaintiff’s side, Seavey also has the unique first-hand experience of having been a party to an SEC action as it progressed from investigation to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
