WilmerHale announced today that Meredith B. Cross, who served as Director of the SEC’s Division of Corporation Finance from June 2009 through the end of 2012, will be rejoining the firm. During this time, Ms. Cross led the Division’s efforts to implement both the Dodd-Frank Act and the JOBS Act. Under her leadership, the Division recommended close to 60 rulemaking releases to the Commission, including those relating to say-on-pay, conflict minerals, proxy access, compensation committees and compensation advisers, asset-backed securities, and the new regulatory regime for derivatives. Ms. Cross also guided the Division’s pragmatic response to numerous issues relating to the IPO “on-ramp” provisions of the JOBS Act. From 1998 to 2009, Ms. Cross was a partner at WilmerHale, and served as co-chair of the firm’s Corporate Practice. She previously served the Division in a variety of capacities between 1990 and 1998, including Attorney Fellow, Deputy Chief Counsel, Chief Counsel, Associate Director and Deputy Director.
