Linklaters appoints SEC man as consultant

Linklaters & Paines has appointed a former commissioner with the Securities and Exchange Commission to act as full-time consultant, to be based at the firm's New York office. Edward Fleischman will be adding a US securities law dimension to the firm's international practice. The move is as a result of demand from clients for services in this area. Fleischman was a partner of Rosenman & Colin, and an SEC commissioner from 1986 to 1992.
