Brown Fox’s Charlene Koonce Moderates NAFER’s Receivers’ Huddle
February 1, 2022 by Brown Fox
In December, Brown Fox partner Charlene Koonce moderated a distinguished panel for the National Association of Federal Equity Receivers (NAFER) who spoke about the Supreme Court’s recent decision in AMG Capital Mgmt. v. FTC. Together with Bikram Bandy, Chief Litigation Counsel of the Federal Trade Commission’s Bureau of Consumer Protection, NAFER’s past-president Kevin Duff, and NAFER’s president-elect, Jonathan Perlman, Charlene addressed AMG’s holding that the FTC can no long seek equitable monetary relief in cases filed pursuant to section 13(b) of the FTC Act. The holding, and the growing number of cases interpreting it, are limiting the FTC’s ability to seek appointment of receivers. The panel discussed how the FTC and experienced receivers are responding to AMG and continuing to seek recoveries for the benefit of defrauded consumers.
Ms. Koonce has extensive experience serving as and representing government enforcement receivers, and has represented numerous individuals and companies in cases asserted by receivers.
