Faegre Baker Daniels continued its services to plaintiffs related to the SEC’s inquiry. This representation by Faegre Baker involved and interview that plaintiff Enneking voluntarily gave to the SEC on the advice of the defendant in late January 2018.

It also included several written and oral communications between the SEC and the defendant. In the course of representation by Faegre Baker Daniel, they provided inaccurate advice and analysis resulting in damage to the plaintiffs.

SEC sent a formal notice to the plaintiff about its decision to commence an enforcement action against CAM for violating federal securities law, following which plaintiffs terminated all business dealings with the defendant and appointed new counsel to represent them for the SEC inquiry.

The SEC claimed that the plaintiffs raised over $3.6 million in late 2017. They also claimed their firm to be the first regulated crypto asset fund in the United States. CAM and plaintiff Enneking agreed to the SEC’s order to pay a penalty of $ 20,000 without denying or admitting the findings against them.
