Baltz handles regulatory issues that cut across financial institution clients’ broker-dealer, investment adviser and bank fiduciary businesses. He previously held multiple positions in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Division of Trading and Markets.
Baltz told Law360 that his experience at the SEC was integral to his work in private practice. “It gave me a very good understanding about the inner workings of the SEC,” he said.
Baltz’s move to McGuireWoods follows the recent addition of D.C. partner John Ayanian to the firm’s broker-dealer regulatory counseling practice. Baltz told Law360 that his move was largely prompted by “excitement to reunite with John, a former partner of mine I’ve known and worked with for the past seven years.”
McGuireWoods’ securities enforcement and litigation group counsels and defends clients involved in leading-edge regulatory issues confronting financial institutions, public companies and senior executives.
