The global general counsel of the International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA) has quit for Lehman Brothers, prompting the promotion of European general counsel David Geen.
Geen will replace former general counsel Kimberly Summe, who will join Lehman Brothers’ prime services group at the end of the year.
CEO of ISDA, Robert Pickel, commented: “David will help us build on the legal foundations that have helped ISDA become the strongest and most relevant financial trade association globally.”
Last year (14 November) The Lawyer reported on Geen’s defection from Goldman Sachs where he served as executive director and senior counsel in its legal department.
As head and co-head of the Goldman legal department's derivatives group, he coordinated the team's advice on the bank’s European derivatives activities. Prior to that, Geen was a partner in the London office of Baker & McKenzie.
