DLA Piper is continuing the growth of its Litigation practice with the addition of Patrick Bryan as a partner in the firm’s Washington, DC office.
Bryan is a leading authority in the financial services and enforcement sector. Over the last nine years, he has served in senior roles for three principal regulators, the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB), the Federal Reserve and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
As the Director of the Division of Enforcement and Investigations at the PCAOB, Bryan provided executive leadership and oversight of the agency’s enforcement program. He designed and led division-wide transformation of PCAOB investigative functions; led the design and implementation of division-wide strategic initiatives; and led several first of their kind enforcement actions, including imposing one of the largest civil money penalties in a settled action for supervisory failures and use of confidential PCAOB inspection information.
