K&L Gates Hires Partner for Investment Management Practice

K&L Gates recently hired Eden Rohrer as a partner in the firm’s investment management, hedge funds and alternative investments practice in New York.

Rohrer, who was most recently a partner at Crowell & Moring LLP, concentrates her practice on broker-dealer regulatory, enforcement and litigation matters, including self-regulatory organization membership, employment, research, soft dollar arrangements, chaperoning of foreign broker-dealers, social media, anti-money laundering rules, securities offerings, and market making and trading issues.

“Eden’s broad and substantial practice advising broker-dealers complements the firm’s strong investment management practice,” said John Bicks, administrative partner of K&L Gates’ New York office. “We are delighted to welcome her to the firm and to the New York office.”

Rohrer helps clients with responses to examinations and inquiries in a range of enforcement proceedings before the Securities and Exchange Commission, FINRA, NYSE, and state and foreign regulatory authorities. Rohrer also has extensive experience with arbitrations and state and federal litigation on a range of securities and corporate issues, including fraud allegations, forgery, misappropriation, breach of fiduciary duty, unauthorized trading, breach of contract, and omissions and violations of securities laws.
