Former SEC Enforcement Chief Richard H. Walker Joins King & Spalding in New York

Richard H. Walker, former Director of Enforcement at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) who for 14 years served as general counsel of Deutsche Bank, has joined King & Spalding’s investigations group as a partner in New York.

From 1991 to 2001, Walker was at the SEC as director of the enforcement division, general counsel and director of the Northeast regional office.

Walker left the SEC in 2001 to join Deutsche Bank as global general counsel.

He retired from that role last year.

King & Spalding’s investigations group lost Christopher Wray this year when he became Director of the FBI.

But in addition to Richard Walker in New York, the group last month added former U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois Zachary Fardon, who launched the firm’s Chicago office.

“We are proud to welcome Dick Walker to our group, our New York office and our firm,” said Wick Sollers, chair of the investigations unit. “He will be a huge asset for our clients, and we all look forward to working with him.”

Walker received his undergraduate degree from Trinity College and his J.D., cum laude, from Temple Law School, and he clerked for the Honorable Collins J. Seitz, former Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.
