Michael Koffler guides investment advisers, broker-dealers and investment funds in their compliance with federal and state securities laws and regulations, and SRO rules. Michael advises clients on the full spectrum of business operations, including advertising, portfolio management, trading, internal controls, compliance programs, mergers and acquisitions and other management issues. He also counsels other financial institutions—banks and insurance companies—on securities issues associated with the management and distribution of investment products.
Like many of his Eversheds Sutherland (US) colleagues, Michael began his legal career with a regulatory agency. He served two years on the staff of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the Division of Investment Management, where he reviewed registration statements, no-action requests, exemptive applications and proxy statements. Michael also helped promulgate SEC rules and answer interpretive questions from financial institutions.
