SEC Enforcement Names Deputy Litigation Chief

Apr 22 2014 | 11:52am ET

A Securities and Exchange Commission lawyer who helped extract an admission of wrongdoing from Harbinger Capital Partners’ Philip Falcone has been promoted.

David Gottesman was named deputy chief litigation counsel at the regulator’s division of enforcement. “David has a keen sense of what works with judges and juries and has distinguished himself as an advocate by winning challenging trials against top defense counsel,” chief litigation counsel Matthew Solomon said. “His trial acumen, together with his subject matter expertise and strong management experience, will be critical assets to our national litigation program.”

Gottesman was a member of the team that reached a fraud settlement with Falcone and Harbinger, one which saw the former barred from the hedge fund industry for at least five years.
