Before joining private practice, Mr. Chambers served as Associate Director (Regulation) in the US Securities and Exchange Commission's Division of Investment Management. He joined the firm in 1999.

Until 1995, Mr. Chambers served as Associate Director (Regulation) in the US Securities and Exchange Commission's Division of Investment Management.
