Mark Radke, a onetime chief of staff to the chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, has joined Arent Fox as a partner in Washington. Previously, he was a partner at Dewey & LeBoeuf.
Radke’s practice focuses on SEC enforcement issues, with a focus on corporate financial reporting and accounting fraud. He advises clients in state and federal criminal and civil cases, inquiries by self-regulatory organizations, and overseas regulatory actions.
From 2001 to 2003, Radke served as SEC Chairman Harvey Pitt’s chief of staff, during which time he helped shape the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and the SEC rules implementing the act.
In a statement, Arent Fox managing partner William Charyk called Radke’s securities enforcement practice “a superb complement to our firm’s international trade, health care, intellectual property, FCPA and white collar defense practices.”
Radke was not immediately available for comment.
