He received the SEC Distinguished Service Award in 1991 and the Presidential Meritorious Executive Award in 1996. After passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, Mr. Humes spearheaded the SEC team that promulgated ethical standards for attorneys who practice before the Commission on behalf of a public company. Before the 9th Circuit, Mr. Humes successfully argued for the SEC’s broad power under Sarbanes-Oxley to freeze “extraordinary payments” to company officers that are made when the Commission is investigating possible wrongdoing.
