While the impact of the subpoena remains to be seen, those familiar with SEC litigation were taken aback by the idea of the regulatory agency targeting such a substantial legal presence. “It’s a big step to switch the focus from the clients to the law firms,” said one lawyer, who asked to remain anonymous to be able to speak freely.
