Derivatives Associate – Chicago

Annual salary: $260,000 – $390,000

This is an excellent Chicago opportunity to counsel domestic and foreign financial services firms with respect to regulatory, transactional and enforcement matters involving derivatives, securities and cryptocurrencies.

You will represent firms—including major financial institutions and proprietary trading firms, as well as traders and brokers—subject to investigations and enforcement actions by the government and SROs with respect to matters involving disruptive trading practices, wash trades, manipulation, unauthorized trading, block trades, non-competitive trading, supervisory failures and fraud, among other issues.

You will join a recognized team who continue to help clients adapt to changes in the United States derivatives market brought about by the Dodd-Frank Act. You will also assist clients in the United States, Europe and Asia in navigating their obligations under the US Commodity Exchange Act, as amended by the Dodd-Frank Act, and US federal securities laws; formulating compliance programs and working with clients to implement those programs; and representing clients in discussions with the CFTC, SEC and self-regulatory organizations (“SROs”) with respect to novel issues.
