JPMorgan has hired Steven Cutler to join the firm in February as general counsel. Recently the director of the division of enforcement at the Securities and Exchange Commission—where he led the SEC’s crackdown on mutual fund trading abuses and corporate fraud—Cutler is currently a partner and co-chair of the securities department at WilmerHale.
“I am very pleased that Steve Cutler will be joining JPMorgan Chase in this critically important role,” said JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon, to whom Cutler will report. “He will be an excellent general counsel and a key member of our senior management team. Steve is a strong leader, noted for his integrity, distinguished service in the public and private sectors, and outstanding reputation in the legal and regulatory communities.”
