Law firm Proskauer hired Samuel Waldon as a partner in the Litigation Department. Based in Washington, D.C., Waldon will focus on securities litigation and regulatory enforcement practices.

“In today’s ever evolving regulatory landscape, Sam’s extensive experience at the SEC and his deep knowledge of federal securities law will be a valuable asset to our clients,” said Tim Mungovan, chair of Proskauer’s Litigation Department.

Waldon joined Proskauer from the SEC, where he served as assistant chief counsel in the Enforcement Division for eight years. Providing guidance on enforcement matters, his focus included the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and financial fraud matters, as well as issues relating to the Freedom of Information, Bank Secrecy, Privacy, Right to Financial Privacy and Electronic Communications Privacy Acts.
