The American Lawyer reports that sometime, very quietly, in the last year, David Aufhauser rejoined powerhouse law firm Williams & Connolly. Aufhauser was previously the former general counsel and managing director of UBS.
Aufhauser was most recently mentioned in Securities Docket, however, in October 2008, when we noted here that Aufhauser had agreed to forfeit his entire 2008 incentive compensation of $6 million to settle a probe by the New York AG’s office on allegations of insider trading in the auction-rate securities market. Under the settlement agreement, Aufhauser also reportedly agreed to pay a $500,000 fine and accept a two-year ban on practicing law.
AmLaw reports that the two year ban was limited to practicing law in the state of New York, however, which may be what permits Aufhauser to practice with W&C, a Washington, DC firm.
