Former Commodity Futures Trading Commission enforcement chief David Meister is returning to the white-shoe law firm he worked at prior to joining the regulator.
Meister will become a partner at Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom next month. He'll lead the noted firm's white-collar practice.
Meister, who left Skadden to join the CFTC three years ago, is only the latest former regulator to join a major law firm. Former Securities and Exchange Commission enforcement chief Robert Khuzami joined Kirkland & Ellis last year, and a number of other SEC lawyers and former federal prosecutors have also moved into private practice recently.
"Skadden has some of my closest friends and is involved in many of the more important white-collar matters in the world," Meister said. "It made perfect sense for me to return."
Meister is not permitted to contact the CFTC about official business for one year.
