“Gary Lynch served as Director during the golden years of the Division of Enforcement. He transformed the pursuit of those who traded on inside information into the hottest area at the SEC and institutionalized the need for market integrity. His pursuit of Boesky and Milken was the inspiration for the critically-acclaimed movie, Wall Street.
After he left the SEC, Mr. Lynch set the bar for high-end enforcement defense at Davis Polk. Then he started the trend of Enforcement Division directors becoming General Counsel to major financial institutions, first leading Credit Suisse and today Bank of America.”
