Honigman Announces Winner of 2017 Securities Law Writing Competition

October 6, 2017

Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP is pleased to announce that Kyle Simon, a 2017 graduate of the Michigan State University College of Law, has won the firm’s second annual Securities Law Writing Competition. Simon’s winning essay was titled “Peering Into the Regulatory Abyss: A Look at Post-Crisis CMBS Regulation.”  

“Kyle’s analysis of the shortcomings of post-financial crisis SEC regulations relating to Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities is spot-on,” said Elliot Spoon, Professor of Law in Residence at the Michigan State University College of Law. “One hopes that regulators and legislators take into account his analysis in any future rule-making or legislation, otherwise the CMBS market will inevitably suffer.”

Simon is an associate broker at Landmark Commercial Real Estate in Farmington Hills, Mich. He earned his B.A. from Michigan State University.
