Eduardo S. Espinosa is an experienced court-appointed fiduciary frequently recommended by regulators to serve in proceedings where there is concern that alleged fraudsters will dissipate the remaining assets.
A former enforcement lawyer with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Eddy has served as either the receiver, receiver’s counsel, or trustee, in various federal and state proceedings in the life settlement sector, fraudulent securities offerings, EB-5 offerings, and general commercial litigation.
In addition to his fraud and recovery practice, Eddy advises clients on the legal and regulatory aspects of their commercial and transactional opportunities. His practice covers an enterprise’s entire lifecycle, including formation, capitalization, governance, domestic and international transactions, mergers and acquisitions, reporting requirements, and regulatory enforcement. Eddy serves on the board of the Dallas Hispanic Law Foundation.
Eddy concentrates his transactional practice in M&A, securities regulation, and corporate governance. Eddy represents buyers and sellers in energy, telecommunications, healthcare, food, real estate services, manufacturing, and financial services sectors.
He has advised issuers, underwriters, broker dealers, investment advisers and investment companies regarding securities offerings and regulatory compliance matters; and has represented market participants before the SEC, the Texas State Securities Board and the Financial Industry regulatory Authority (FINRA).
He complements his legal skills with a Master in Business Administration and a prior career in managerial accounting.
