She advises public companies, financial institutions, investment managers, broker-dealers, public accounting firms, boards of directors and boards of trustees, lawyers, law firms, corporate officers and others on regulatory compliance, corporate governance and crisis management matters, appearing regularly before the SEC, DOJ, FINRA, PCAOB and other federal and state authorities. Since joining King & Spalding in early 2014, the government has closed over two dozen investigations without charging Dixie's clients.

She has also served in leadership roles within the American Bar Association, including as business law section chair and as chair of the federal regulation of securities committee. A fellow of the American College of Governance Counsel and a member of the Lead Director Network, Dixie regularly interacts with lead directors, presiding directors, and non-executive board chairs from many of the largest companies in the world.
