Finn Dixon partner Andy Calamari has been a sought-after voice on retail investors’ “short squeeze” on GameStop stock last week. In a front-page article in the New York Times, Andy gave his thoughts on the legal implications of this extreme volatility event in the market. The Times sought Andy’s opinion as a securities lawyer at Finn Dixon and as the former director of the New York office of the SEC. CNBC’s Squawk on the Street and Reuters have also featured him in interviews about the SEC’s possible reactions to this event and its effect on market manipulation regulations.
Andy is a member of the firm’s practice groups in Government and Internal Investigations, Litigation, and Investment Advisors/Broker-Dealers. Before joining FDH, he was the director of the New York office of the SEC and had practiced privately for nearly 15 years. Today, Andy’s practice includes representing clients in securities litigation, enforcement and internal investigations, and accounting-related matters. He also advises regulated entities and persons on compliance and examination issues.
