Mark A. Adler, a Harvard law graduate with experience in both the private and public sectors of law and the Securities and Exchange Commission’s assistant chief litigation counsel since 1997, has been promoted to the Commission’s deputy chief litigation counsel for the enforcement division.

Adler replaces Peter H. Bresnan, now an associate director of the same division. The director of the division, Stephen M. Cutler, said of the promotion, "I am very pleased that Mark will be helping to lead our litigation program, which has expanded significantly over the last few years."

"Mark is a brilliant trial lawyer with a deep commitment to enforcing the securities laws and protecting the Nation's investors," he added.

Before his time at the SEC, Adler served for nine years at the Department of Justice , specializing in white-collar cases. Before that, he was a private civil and commercial lawyer in New York.
