Former CFTC chief counsel Elizabeth Ritter joins DLA Piper’s derivatives practice
DLA Piper has announced 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 adviser.
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 her new role, Ritter will reportedly 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.
