We invite you to explore Brooks Pierce blogs.

Cady Bar the Door

Brooks Pierce attorney David Smyth is a former Assistant Director of the SEC's Enforcement Division, and gives insight and commentary on SEC Enforcement Actions and White Collar Criminal Defense in his blog "Cady Bar the Door."  David explains,"The blog’s title is a pun. It is a combination of an old saying, “Katie bar the door,” which essentially means, "Better take care, trouble is coming,” and the SEC’s 1961 administrative opinion in In re Cady, Roberts & Co., which built the foundation for modern insider trading law." His blog explores insider trading and other topics relevant to federal securities law enforcement.

North Carolina Business Litigation Report

While litigator Mack Sperling is on leave from the daily practice of law, he continues to author the long-standing and well-respected North Carolina Business Litigation Report blog. Mack covers everything related to the North Carolina Business Court, and says "This is a blog for lawyers, though I don’t mean to run anyone off who wants to read it. But I’m writing, for the most part, about cases that involve issues of North Carolina business law, and the day-to-day practice of business litigation in North Carolina courts."
