After decades with the Securities and Exchange Commission, two high-level veterans are leaving to take BigLaw posts in which they will help clients comply with the Dodd-Frank Act.
After 25 years with the SEC, James Brigagliano is leaving his job as deputy director of the trading and markets division for Sidley Austin, the law firm announced today in a press release.
And John H. Walsh is leaving after 23 years to join Sutherland Asbill & Brennan, a law firm press release last week confirmed. He is associate director and chief counsel of the office of compliance inspections and examinations.
“As the line between compliance and enforcement increasingly blurs, I look forward to using my extensive knowledge to help counsel clients on some of their most critical matters and help them navigate today’s new regulatory and compliance hurdles,” Walsh said in a written statement provided to Bloomberg.
