LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) September 19, 2019
Lido Advisors, LLC, a full-service, independent, registered investment advisory firm, announced today that its Senior Managing Director, General Counsel, and Chief Compliance Officer, Jason Lee, has been named one of The Top 100 Lawyers in California for 2019 by The Daily Journal.
The Los Angeles/San Francisco Daily Journal, dedicated to providing California lawyers all the information and news that they need, announced its list of The Top 100 Lawyers in California yesterday.
The Daily Journal reviewed the work in the last year of several hundred attorneys and selected Lee to be on this prestigious list. The publication looked for attorneys who had a broad impact on the law and the legal industry in California. The article about Lee cites his work with the California Bar and provides highlights.
Lee joined Lido Advisors, LLC as General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer in August 2017. He is now responsible for the firm’s overall administrative, operational, legal, and regulatory functions.
He has more than 20 years of white collar and securities-related litigation, regulatory, and compliance experience in both government, private practice, and in-house settings. He started his career in the Securities & Exchange Commission’s Honors Program and worked to protect investors through nearly 15 years in the Division of Enforcement, both in Washington D.C. and Los Angeles, pursuing investment adviser and broker dealer misconduct, financial fraud, insider trading, and market manipulation.
He also worked on joint inter-agency criminal and civil investigations, including joint investigations with the FBI, FDA, and U.S. Attorneys’ offices throughout the country. Further, he advised the Director of the Division of Enforcement as a Senior Special Counsel on programmatic policies impacting the agency’s overall investigative and litigation efforts.
Lee spent six years in private practice at a San Francisco-based firm where he co-chaired its securities defense practice. There he represented hedge fund managers, investment advisors, brokers, and public companies in a myriad of federal, state, and regulatory investigations and actions. He also engaged in multi-jurisdictional complex business litigation, including securities class actions and mass actions. He is admitted to practice law in California and in all the state’s federal courts.
Lee has been recognized by the SEC numerous times for his exemplary work, receiving multiple Division of Enforcement Director Awards and agency’s Award for Excellence (the SEC’s highest honor). In 2018, he was appointed by the California Supreme Court to serve as Chair of the California State Bar’s Board of Trustees, the governing body of the largest attorney bar in the country, overseeing over 250,000 licensees. As the Chair, he is charged with overseeing more than 500 employees and the agency’s $250 million budget that runs the state’s attorney regulatory system, including discipline, admissions, education, and critical diversity and access to justice efforts. Prior to his service on the Board of Trustees, Lee was the Chair of the Commission on Judicial Nominees Evaluation, the body statutorily responsible for vetting and rating the qualifications of all potential appointees to California’s trial and appellate courts.
