Geoffrey F. Aronow is a retired partner in the Washington, D.C. office of the law firm Sidley Austin LLP, which he joined in 2014.[1]

Before, he served as general counsel at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), from January 2013 until June 2014, and as chief counsel in the SEC’s Office of International Affairs. He was responsible for evaluating regulations, advising the SEC chairman and representing the agency in lawsuits and other legal matters.

Background[edit]

From 2008 to 2013, Aronow was a partner at the Washington law firm Bingham McCutchen LLP. His clients included Christine Serwinski, who was chief financial officer at MF Global Holdings Ltd. before it collapsed in 2011.[2]

Aronow was the director of enforcement at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission from 1995 to 1999. While there, he oversaw the enforcement case in which the CFTC accused Japan-based Sumitomo Corp. and Merrill Lynch & Co. of manipulating copper prices in late 1995. The case resulted in the highest fines in the Commission's history.

He has also served on disciplinary panels for the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.[3]

Education[edit]

Aronow earned his Bachelor of Arts in history from Yale University and his JD from Yale Law School.[4]
