SEC Taps Bingham McCutchen's Geoffrey Aronow as New General Counsel


Geoffrey F. Aronow has been named as the new general counsel of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

A partner in the Washington, D.C., office of Bingham McCutchen, he formerly served for nearly four years as director of the federal Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s enforcement division. Both Bloomberg and Reuters have brief stories.

An SEC press release provides further details and says Aronow is expected to start work there later in January. An earlier Bloomberg story notes that Aronow is a graduate of Yale Law School.
