“I have known Dan for years and he is an extraordinarily good fit for us on both a professional and personal level,” noted Morvillo co-founder Richard J.

Over the past 25 years, Mr. Nathan has served as an Assistant Director in the Division of Enforcement of the SEC, Deputy Director of Enforcement with the CFTC and Vice President in charge of FINRA’s Regional Enforcement Program. He will continue to advise institutions on a broad range of issues, including supervision and compliance, broker-dealer sales practices, complex products, Dodd-Frank regulatory issues including the Volcker Rule, securities offerings and the JOBS Act, and cybersecurity.
“In a short time, Morvillo has established itself as a premier boutique law firm that handles sophisticated and complex problems for its clients,” noted Mr. Nathan. “It will be great to tap into the collective experience of my highly talented colleagues, who include former prosecutors from the Department of Justice and SEC.
