The former top attorney at the Securities and Exchange Commission will defend himself on Thursday against allegations that he had a conflict of interest when handling legal matters related to convicted swindler Bernard Madoff. “I did precisely what I was supposed to do,” former SEC General Counsel David Becker will tell U.S. lawmakers at a hearing convened to explore the allegations. “I identified a matter that required legal advice from the SEC’s ethics office. I sought advice, received it, and followed it,” Becker says in written testimony for the hearing.
