Former SEC Enforcement Lawyer And Federal Prosecutor
Dan Hurson, a graduate of Georgetown University and Harvard Law School, is an experienced litigator with more than 40 years of law practice handling a variety of cases, including matters involving the securities laws. He has the unusual credential of having been a federal prosecutor with the Department of Justice and an SEC enforcement attorney. In private practice, he has represented clients in matters before the DOJ, the SEC, FINRA, and other state and federal agencies. He is a Martindale-Hubble AV* rated attorney (highest rating) who has been recognized by the Attorney General of the United States and The District of Columbia Bar for his service to the government and the legal profession. He has written numerous articles on legal subjects, one of which was recently cited by the United States Supreme Court in an important case interpreting the federal mail fraud statute. He has received recognition from Washington Super Lawyers in securities litigation. He has been quoted by numerous legal publications and national newspapers, and has appeared on a number of televised news programs discussing legal issues.
Dan Hurson made suggestions cited by the SEC in its Final Rule introducing the Dodd-Frank whistleblower law. He was one of the first securities lawyers to focus on representing whistleblowers, and has filed a number of whistleblower submissions with the SEC. Some have resulted in or contributed to SEC investigations, and one of which recently generated an award of more than $3.5 million.
