DLA Piper Hires Former CFTC Chief Counsel Elizabeth Ritter

dla piper

DLA Piper announced this week that former Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) Chief Counsel Elizabeth Ritter has joined the firm as a partner in its Corporate and Finance practice. Ritter joins former CFTC Commissioner Bart Chilton, who came to DLA Piper in April as a senior policy advisor.

In her new role, Ritter will complement DLA Piper’s ability to serve clients in all aspects of derivatives and other complex financial instruments and provide counsel regarding domestic and international financial regulations in the wake of global financial market reform measures.

During her 25 years at the CFTC, Ritter served as Counsel to Republican and Democrat chairs of the agency and several commissioners, including serving as Chief of Staff and Senior Legal Counsel to Chilton. In addition to her work at the CFTC, Ritter worked as Senior Legal Counsel to the Chairman of the US Senate Committee on Agriculture during the drafting of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

“We have a tremendous team to help our clients figure out the myriad and often very complex rules, not just in the US, but around the world,” said Marc Horwitz, head of DLA Piper’s Derivatives practice. “Elizabeth has unmatched experience as one of those involved in both the drafting of the Dodd-Frank legislation as well as in the development of the implementing regulations, and as such has a deep and broad understanding of global financial market regulation.”

Ritter is also an adjunct professor at Georgetown University Law School, focusing on the regulation of derivatives and complex derivative transactions, and has taught as an adjunct professor at the American University Washington School of Law, the Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law, and the George Washington University National Law Center in the area of federal securities and derivatives regulation.
She has written extensively on derivatives and securities regulation, including issues relating to the securitization of commodity transactions and trading facilities definitions under the US Commodity Exchange Act.
