Sean Prosser has joined the Perkins Coie’s San Diego office as a partner in the white collar and investigations practice.
Prior to joining Perkins Coie, Sean was a partner with Morrison & Foerster in San Diego.
Sean is the fifth partner to join Perkins Coie’s San Diego office this year, following the additions of Tom Millikan, Joe Reid and Laura Zagar in February and Julie Hussey in April.
“Sean is an outstanding securities litigator and one of the best SEC attorneys on the West Coast,” said Matthew Bernstein of Perkins Coie’s San Diego office. “His background in both the private sector and government sides of securities enforcement is an invaluable resource for our clients and builds upon our existing nationally recognized white collar practice. As the firm continues to expand, especially in California, Sean’s addition further strengthens our national reputation.”
Prosser is a former enforcement attorney with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)
“Sean’s addition is a key component of building out our national white collar practice,” said Pravin Rao, Chair of Perkins Coie’s white collar and investigations practice. “His successful track record at the SEC and his broad experience representing companies and their officers and directors facing complex securities issues will benefit our clients both in California and nationally. We are delighted to welcome Sean to Perkins Coie.”
Sean earned his J.D from New York Law School and received his B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania.
