Summary: Stradley Ronon announced on Tuesday that Jeffrey E. McFadden, most recently the chair of the securities litigation and enforcement practice group at Steptoe & Johnson, has joined the firm as a partner in its Washington DC office.

McFadden has nearly 25 years of experience litigating cases in state and federal courts and administrative forums across the country. He brings to Stradley Ronon significant white-collar criminal defense and corporate internal investigations experience, including service to the Special Investigative Committee of the Board of Directors of Enron Corp.

Sasso.

McFadden represents corporations and individuals in high-stakes civil and criminal litigation, administrative enforcement matters and arbitrations. He has extensive experience in private securities litigation in areas such as securities fraud class actions, shareholder derivative suits and transaction injunction suits.
