Division of Corporation Finance — Attorney Openings
April 8, 2015
Disclosure Review Program
We are currently accepting applications for attorney positions in the Division’s Disclosure Review Program.
The Division of Corporation Finance assists the Commission in executing its responsibility to oversee corporate disclosure of important information to the investing public. The Division's staff routinely reviews documents that publicly-held companies are required to file with the Commission. The documents include registration statements; annual and quarterly filings; proxy materials sent to shareholders before an annual meeting; and filings related to mergers and acquisitions. These documents disclose information about the companies' financial condition and business practices to help investors make informed investment decisions. Through the Division's selective review process, the staff monitors compliance with disclosure requirements and seeks to improve the quality of the disclosure. The staff also provides companies with assistance interpreting the Commission's rules and recommends to the Commission new rules for adoption.
For additional information about the work of Disclosure Review Program, please refer to the summary of our Filing Review Process.
The Division has openings for entry level and experienced candidates. Candidates must have a J.D. from an accredited law school, be an active member of the bar, and have excellent writing, communication, and analytical skills. Demonstrated experience with and knowledge of the statutes and regulations administered by the Commission, with a particular emphasis on the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, are especially desirable.
