May 6, 2020 by Allison Bell
The New York State Department of Financial Services has hired Richard Weber to be its general counsel.
Weber previously was head of financial crime prevention for the Americas at UBS.
He also has been head of anti-financial crime for the Americas at Deutsche Bank.
Before Weber joined Deutsche Bank, he spent five years as chief of the criminal investigation division at the Internal Revenue Service. Those investigations led to the forfeiture of about $15 billion in criminal penalties.
