The former counselor to the chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission has rejoined Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman as a partner, the firm announced Monday.
Michael Halloran, who most recently was a partner at Haynes and Boone, will split his time between Pillsbury's Washington and Silicon Valley offices.
Halloran left Pillsbury in 1990 to serve as general counsel of Bank of America. He returned to the firm in 1997 and then departed again for the SEC in 2006. Halloran served for two years at the SEC and in 2010 joined Haynes and Boone in Washington.
Halloran focuses his practice on financial services and tech companies for which he handles public offerings, mergers and acquisitions, venture capital, private financing and corporate governance, among others.
“In addition to his insights on capital and development issues facing businesses of all sizes, Mike brings outstanding perspective on new strategies and regulations affecting boards of directors, securities offerings, venture capital and a host of other areas,” Robert Robbins, head of Pillsbury’s corporate and securities practice, said in a written statement.
Halloran was not immediately available for comment.
