“We are extremely pleased to have such talented lawyers as Mark and David joining us,” said Sharon Flanagan, managing partner of Sidley’s San Francisco office. “Their practices are an excellent fit and have strong synergies with our growing practices in San Francisco and Palo Alto.”


Whatley concentrates his practice on securities regulation and transactional and business counseling matters, with a particular focus on investment management and broker-dealer regulation.  Tang focuses his practice on securities regulation, private investment fund formation, mergers and acquisitions and public and private debt and equity offerings.

Sidley’s investment funds, advisers and derivatives practice consists of more than 120 lawyers in Chicago, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Singapore and Tokyo.
