Mr Michel Pinault, Division President of the Conseil d’Etat, becomes Chairman of the AMF Enforcement Committee

Published on January 17, 2014

Michel Pinault has been elected Chairman of the Enforcement Committee further to the partial renewal of its members. Marie-Hélène Tric will chair the second division of the Committee.

After the appointment of six new members in December 2013, the Autorité des Marches Financiers Enforcement Committee elected its new Chairman, Michel Pinault, at its meeting of 7 January 2014. He is a Division President of the Conseil d’Etat and has been an Enforcement Committee member since June 2011. He will be taking over from Claude Nocquet, a Court of Cassation Trial Judge.

The chairperson of the Enforcement Committee is elected by a majority vote of Committee members, from among the 4 judges appointed by the vice-president of the Conseil d’Etat and the first president of the Court of Cassation. He or she must be re-elected after each partial renewal.

To rule on the cases submitted to it, the Enforcement Committee may sit in a plenary session or by division. As allowed by the Monetary and Financial Code, the Committee is organised in two divisions, each with six members and chaired by one of the members of the Conseil d’Etat or one of the Court of Cassation trial judges. The Committee sitting in plenary session and the first division will therefore be chaired by Mr Pinault. The Committee members also elected Marie-Hélène Tric, Honorary Judge at the Court of Cassation and a member of the Committee since January 2011, as Chair of the second division.
