The Minority Corporate Counsel Association (MCCA) has named Partner Randall Lee a 2015 Rainmaker. The MCCA’s Annual List of Rainmakers recognizes 15 lawyers from around the country whose professional success and business development skills offer insight and value to lawyers at every career stage.
The MCCA profile notes that Lee began his legal career as a transactional lawyer and then switched paths to become a federal prosecutor. After spending 13 years in public service, first as an Assistant US Attorney then as Regional Director for the Pacific Region of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Lee joined WilmerHale in 2007 to open its Los Angeles office, where he remains partner-in-charge. Lee’s practice focuses on representing companies and individuals in investigations by the SEC, the US Department of Justice, and other regulatory and law enforcement agencies, as well as in complex civil litigation.
