Katherine "Kit" Addleman, the Atlanta regional director of the Securities and Exchange Commission, will become partner in law firm Haynes and Boone’s Dallas office in late October.

Addleman has spent the last 20 years overseeing some of the government’s highest profile enforcement cases

"Kit has proven herself to be a terrific lawyer who has played a major role in significant SEC efforts to protect investors," says Terry Conner, Haynes and Boone managing partner. "Her background will be an invaluable asset for the firm and our clients. We are privileged to have her as our partner."

Addleman served in four SEC regional offices during her government tenure. In her last post as Atlanta regional director, she oversaw all aspects of the Atlanta office’s operations, including its enforcement, examination, litigation and bankruptcy reorganisation programmes.

Cases brought under Addleman’s leadership included accounting fraud and financial disclosure violations by public companies and their officers and directors as well as audit failures by accounting firms and individuals. Additionally, she directed investigations and litigation involving insider trading by corporate insiders and securities market participants; fraud and compliance violations by investment advisers; and fraud, books and records, and supervision violations by broker-dealers and representatives. Addleman was also responsible for numerous matters involving market manipulation, offering fraud, and Ponzi schemes, which often involved emergency actions for temporary restraining orders, asset freezes and expedited hearings.

Addleman’s legal career began in 1986 as an enforcement staff attorney and special counsel in the SEC’s office in Philadelphia. She spent seven years as assistant regional director for enforcement in the commission’s Denver office, then became associate regional director for enforcement in the Atlanta office from 2005 to 2006, and the Fort Worth office from 2006 to 2007. She was named regional director of the Atlanta office in June 2007.
