Linda L. Griggs is a partner in Morgan Lewis's Securities Practice. Ms. Griggs's practice focuses on securities regulatory matters, including financial reporting and accounting and other disclosure requirements under the securities laws and public and private securities offerings. Ms. Griggs also handles corporate law matters, including advising with respect to the fiduciary duties of directors and corporate governance matters.

In August 2013, Ms. Griggs was appointed to serve on the Financial Accounting Standards Advisory Council (FASAC) by the Board of Trustees of the Financial Accounting Foundation. FASAC is responsible for advising the Financial Accounting Standards Board on strategic issues, project priorities, and other matters that affect accounting standards. Ms. Griggs served on the SEC's Advisory Committee on Improvements to Financial Reporting, which submitted its final report and recommendations to the SEC in August 2008. Before joining Morgan Lewis, Ms. Griggs served as chief counsel to the chief accountant of the SEC for five years. Prior to that, she worked in the Division of Corporation Finance at the SEC as a special counsel, as an attorney in the Division's rule-writing office, and as a reviewer of registration statements, proxy statements and reports filed by companies covered by federal securities laws.

Ms. Griggs co-authors the Morgan Lewis Financial Reporting and the Law blog, which discusses legal and financial reporting issues that impact public companies, audit committees, auditors, and their advisers. The blog provides insight regarding matters at the intersection of law and financial reporting, paying particular attention to SEC developments, accounting and auditing standard-setting activities, and relevant case law.

Ms. Griggs is admitted to practice in the District of Columbia.
