San Diego-based securities and corporate M&A firm brings in seasoned attorney, with a strength in the corporate securities arena, specifically within the intricacies and nuances of the Investment Company Act of 1940 and the Investment Advisers Act of 1940.

Ms. Griffith began her legal career in the international section of the Office of Chief Counsel at the US Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington, DC, where she worked on the intricacies and nuances of the Investment Company Act of 1940 and the Investment Advisers Act of 1940.

Her extensive experience enables her to strategically advocate for her clients and position them to achieve their business objectives.
