Geoffrey F. Aronow was general counsel and senior policy advisor at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission from January 2013 until June 2014. The SEC general counsel evaluates regulations, advises the SEC chairman and represents the agency in lawsuits and other legal matters.

Aronow is a partner at the Washington law firm Bingham McCutchen LLP, which he joined in 2008. His clients have included Christine Serwinski, who was chief financial officer at MF Global Holdings Ltd. before it collapsed in 2011.[1]


Aronow served as director of enforcement at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission from 1995 to 1999. While there, he oversaw the enforcement case in which the CFTC accused Japan-based Sumitomo Corp. and Merrill Lynch & Co. of manipulating copper prices in late 1995. The case resulted in the highest fines in the commission's history.

He has also served on disciplinary panels for the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.
