Steptoe & Johnson Nabs SEC Associate Director

Steptoe & JohnsonChristopher R. Conte, an associate director in the SEC’s Division of Enforcement, is leaving the government agency after 18 years to be a partner at Steptoe & Johnson LLP.

Conte will join the firm’s Washington D.C. office in September. While at the SEC, Conte played a lead role in several SEC enforcement actions, including its cases against Morgan Stanley, J.P. Morgan and Robertson Stephens Inc. involving unlawful IPO allocation practices, and accounting violations of Dell Inc.

Conte joined the SEC as a staff attorney in 1992 and rose to the rank of associate director in October 2006.
