September 10, 2019 by Christine Simmons
Opting against Big Law after his latest high-profile stint in government, Robert Khuzami has joined asset manager and investment bank Guggenheim Partners, one of his former clients.
Khuzami, a former director of the SEC’s enforcement division, Kirkland & Ellis partner and senior in-house lawyer at Deutsche Bank, was most recently the right-hand man to U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman in Manhattan.
Guggenheim Partners announced Tuesday morning he was joining the firm, effective immediately, as a managing partner and chief legal officer. Guggenheim said Khuzami will join the senior leadership group that manages Guggenheim and guides its future growth. He will focus on Guggenheim’s “strategic and business activities while also supervising the firm’s legal, regulatory and compliance activities,” the firm said.
Khuzami did not respond to a request for comment.
