Vedder Price announced today that Wayne M. Aaron has joined the firm as a member of the Investment Services group and Corporate practice area in New York. Mr. Aaron joined from Milbank, where he served as a Partner in the Litigation & Arbitration, Financial Services Regulatory and Technology practices.

An experienced securities regulatory lawyer, Mr. Aaron represents financial services firms, management and other personnel in regulatory and governmental investigations and internal investigations. His varied practice spans financial services advisory matters, broker-dealer regulation and enforcement, government and regulatory investigations, and FinTech.

“Wayne is a terrific addition to our existing broker-dealer and regulatory investigations practices as we look to continue to grow and diversify those practices, including into other complementary areas, such as high frequency trading and FinTech regulatory work,” said Corporate Practice Area Chair Jennifer Durham King. “We look forward to having Wayne on board and to his assistance in growing our financial services and corporate-related practices in New York.”

Mr. Aaron regularly advises securities firms and their employees on complex sales and trading and other regulatory issues affecting the securities markets. He represents clients in examinations and inquiries by, and enforcement proceedings before, the Securities and Exchange Commission and other government regulators and self-regulatory organizations. His practice encompasses a wide-range of regulatory issues currently affecting financial services firms, hedge funds and other institutional investors.

“I’m excited to offer my clients access to Vedder’s resources and platform, and to join a firm with such a collaborative, cross-selling culture,” said Mr. Aaron. “I look forward not only to growing my practice and working with Vedder’s existing clients, but also to working with my new colleagues across many of our practice groups and in New York to deliver best-in-class customer service.”

Mr. Aaron earned his J.D. from Hofstra University School of Law and his B.S. from Tufts University. He began his legal career with Solomon, Zauderer, Ellenhorn, Frischer & Sharp before practicing at Milbank for 17 years.
