(Bloomberg) -- Norm Champ, a former SEC official who shaped rules meant to prevent runs on money-market mutual funds, is joining law firm Kirkland & Ellis.

Champ, 52, will become a New York-based partner advising private-equity firms on regulatory compliance and other strategic matters, the firm said Wednesday. The former director of the SEC’s Investment Management unit also will help clients navigate interactions with SEC examiners and guide them on stricter requirements in packaging products for retail investors, he said in an interview.
