Biography

Eva Carman is a managing partner of the New York office and co-chief of the securities & futures enforcement group. She is Chambers-ranked for “Nationwide, Securities: Regulation: Enforcement,” where she is recognized by clients as “extraordinarily knowledgeable,” “exceptionally smart” and “superb at what she does.”

She has 25 years of experience representing investment advisers in connection with Securities and Exchange Commission examinations, investigations and litigated actions. Her focus includes private equity, hedge fund and credit fund defense, having worked with over forty firms in connection with the SEC's focus on the private fund industry. Her practice is nationwide. She has had recent cases in seven of the SEC's regional offices and the Washington office. Her high-profile successes include the dismissal of claims against one of the central figures in the credit crisis cases - the former head of Countrywide Home Loans. Her recent non-public successes include two rare mid-investigation dismissals of fee and expense investigations, and complete defense of a portfolio manager of a prominent hedge fund in an insider trading case. As a result of her years in the industry and track record of success, she is well-regarded by hedge fund managers, investment advisors and private equity firms, who not only seek her counsel in investigations and litigated matters, but also for regulatory guidance on matters relating to insider trading, custody, anti-corruption, design and implementation of compliance programs intended to address complex and novel trading and business issues. She has also been tapped to conduct internal investigations, the most recent of which was of a commodities broker that was under investigation for complex issues associated with accounting disclosures. Throughout these matters, Eva has demonstrated the skills that make her a sought-after counselor and advocate: knowledge of the regulators, sensitivity to the nuances of working in a politically charged atmosphere, and a deep understanding of her clients' industry and businesses.
