Goldin Associates is pleased to announce that William Edwards, an expert on a range of investment-fund issues, including valuation, governance, trading practices and risk management, has joined the firm as a Managing Director. William will advise Goldin clients on, among other things, policy and procedure review and implementation of enhanced controls. He will also be active in Goldin's Dispute Resolution and Independent Monitoring practices. William joins Goldin from the Market Abuse Unit of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, where he was a Senior Enforcement Attorney working on investigations relating to investment-fund activities, including improper asset/portfolio valuation, market manipulation, conflicts-of-interest and misuse of investor funds.
Prior to working at the SEC, William practiced law at Wachtell, Lipton Rosen & Katz, where he represented corporations and individuals in regulatory enforcement proceedings, white collar matters and complex securities litigation. William is a graduate of Harvard College, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and recognized with the Thomas T. Hoopes Prize for his original scholarship, and of Harvard Law School, where he served as Notes Chair of the Harvard Law Review and a member of the winning team in the 92nd annual Ames Moot Court Competition.
Goldin founding Senior Managing Director Harrison J. Goldin said that "Will is a tremendous addition to our firm. Together with Goldin Senior Managing Director Marti P. Murray, a former hedge-fund manager, Will and other members of the firm's hedge fund services group will be able to advise clients from the perspective of a former leading regulatory enforcement lawyer, in addition to that of former investors, auditors, bankers and other fund constituents." He added that "Will is well-positioned not only to bolster our investment-fund consulting services--both in the context of risk mitigation and disputes--but also to conduct investigations and serve as an independent monitor."
