Chuck Walker is co-chair of Skadden’s Litigation Group in the Washington, D.C. office. Mr. Walker has substantial experience representing individuals and corporations in investigations by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, the United States Department of Justice, and state regulatory agencies, and in conducting corporate internal investigations.

He also represents individual and corporate clients in parallel investigations conducted by both the Securities and Exchange Commission and the United States Department of Justice.

In addition to a number of recent corporate internal investigations on behalf of both audit committees and management, some of Mr. Walker’s notable engagements include successfully defending a bank holding company in connection with an SEC investigation of alleged financial statement fraud; the representation of a public company, its officers and employees in a concurrent SEC/U.S. Department of Justice investigation of alleged accounting fraud; and defending a foreign private issuer in a parallel SEC/U.S. Department of Justice inquiry relating to the issuer’s financial reporting and disclosure.

Mr. Walker rejoined Skadden after serving as securities commissioner for the state of Delaware from 1996 to 1999. Earlier in his career, he served as a deputy attorney general for the state of Delaware and special counsel for the Securities and Exchange Commission. Mr. Walker is a member of the firm’s Ethics Committee. He also serves on the firm’s Client Engagement and Diversity committees.

Mr. Walker has authored numerous articles on state and federal securities law issues and is the co-author of a leading guide on SEC procedure, The SEC Enforcement Process: Practice and Procedure in Handling an SEC Investigation (Bloomberg BNA, 2014).
