Morrison & Foerster Hires Their Best Yet


Morrison & Foerster have truly outdone themselves this time. With the acquisition of Martin Dunn, 20-year veteran with the SEC, they have made one of the greatest hires in the company’s history.

“It is safe to say that no other securities practitioner today has the depth of experience that Marty has with respect to the operations,” said Larren M. Nashelsky, chair of Morrison & Foerster. “Marty joins our partner Dave Lynn, a former Chief Counsel of the SEC’s Division of Corporate Finance, to create an exceptional team that will serve as a destination securities resource to our clients.”

This illustrates how important friendships and networking is in getting where you want to be and working with those you respect and enjoy being with.

Dunn, meanwhile brings his decades of SEC experience, which began with his undergrad degree from the University of Notre Dame, and continued with his J.D. From American University, Washington College of Law.

Since that time he was won various awards including the Capital Market’s Award, Regularity Simplification Award, and Law and Policy Award. Clearly hard working, a trail of honors and respect have characterized his entire career.

At the SEC, Dunn was supervisor over the Corporation Finance Divisions’ Offices of Chief Counsel, as well as working various other roles, including Chief Accountant and Small Business and Enforcement Liaison. Refusing to be type set or pigeon holed, he always strove for a variety of challenges to increase his power and value as an attorney.

“I am excited to join Morrison & Foerster’s rapidly growing Corporate Finance practice,” said Dunn. “We are particularly well positioned to assist our clients on SEC matters, corporate governance issues and capital raising transactions in this ever-changing regulatory environment. I am delighted to be working with Davy Lynn and all of the outstanding lawyers at Morrison & Forrester.”

Having excitement in your career after 20 years can only come from continually challenging yourself, continuing to grow, and this Dunn has done all along.
