After limiting its operations during the partial federal government shutdown, the SEC is working to resume normal operations this morning. The Division of Trading and Markets, the Division of Investment Management, and the Division of Corporate Finance have each issued separate guidance this morning with respect to their operations, including how they are prioritizing outstanding matters.
For more information about the effect of the partial federal government shutdown on SEC operations or securities regulation generally, please feel free to contact us.

While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
DO NOT CONVEY TO US ANY INFORMATION YOU REGARD AS CONFIDENTIAL UNTIL A FORMAL CLIENT-ATTORNEY RELATIONSHIP HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED.
If you do convey information, you recognize that we may review and disclose the information, and you agree that even if you regard the information as highly confidential and even if it is transmitted in a good faith effort to retain us, such a review does not preclude us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could be used against you.
