Greg Keating, chair of the whistleblower defense practice at Choate, was recently quoted in the article titled, “Could Donald Trump's SEC Soften Enforcement of Severance Agreements?,” by The National Law Journal. Mr. Keating discusses the future of severance agreements after President-elect Trump transitions into office.

From the article:

The securities defense bar has “questioned whether there’s really a concrete foundation” supporting the commission’s recent action against severance agreements, said Greg Keating, who leads the whistleblower defense practice at Choate, Hall & Stewart.

“If there was an area where they might throttle back, if it’s a much more conservative, Republican-controlled SEC, it might be that area,” Keating said.
