New Clout for Compliance Lawyers

Article published on May 20, 2005

Years of scandal have given compliance lawyers tremendous new clout on Wall Street, The New York Times reports.
Though considered something of a dead-end job a few years ago, the compliance lawyer is now hotly sought after, industry people tell the paper.

From 2001 to 2003, securities industry jobs dealing with corporate oversight rose 30%, compared to an industrywide decrease of 8%, according to Securities Industry Association data cited by the Times.

Naturally, pay has risen with demand.

Lawyers and recruiters interviewed by the Times say that many lawyers experienced in compliance issues can pull down salaries of around $300,000 for a mid-level associate position, while those heading compliance at major firms could expect up to seven figures. Fueling the trend further, hedge funds have started seeking out compliance experts ahead of new regulations requiring them to register with the SEC starting next year.

One place that big firms are looking is in government, seeking out staff lawyers from the SEC and former prosecutors with expertise in corporate fraud cases, the Times adds.

Two lawyers from Eliot Spitzer's office are among those who've been recruited from government positions to Wall Street compliance posts. Last year, Beth Golden, Spitzer's deputy for special projects, went to Bear Stearns as global head of compliance. And in 2003, Morgan Stanley hired Spitzer aide Eric Dinallo as its regulatory chief.

Along with more pay, meanwhile, comes more power. Compliance chiefs used to report to their company's deputy chief counsel. But in many cases they now report directly to the CEO, according to the Times.

Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
