Former SEC Senior Counsel Offers Her Current Perspective on the SEC and the Private Funds Industry

Stacey Song recently rejoined Fried Frank’s corporate department as a partner. Based in the firm’s New York office, she will focus on investment advisers, private funds and broker-dealers. Song previously served as a Senior Counsel in the Private Funds Branch of the Division of Investment Management at the SEC where she was the primary expert on legal matters relating to private funds and provided interpretive guidance to other divisions and offices within the SEC, as well as to various industry participants.

This article provides Song’s thoughts on the perspective she gained on the private funds industry and the SEC; collaboration between the industry and Commission staff; and the current regulatory landscape.
