U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
Special Counsel, Office of Mergers and Acquisitions, Division of Corporation Finance
Washington, DC, USA

Perry Hindin has been an attorney in the Division of Corporation Finance at the United States Securities and Exchange Commission for over 10 years. For the past five years, Perry has served as a special counsel in the Office of Mergers & Acquisitions, which oversees the regulation of domestic and cross-border M&A transactions and the statutory and regulatory interpretive functions of the SEC as they relate to tender offers, mergers, contested and other non-routine proxy solicitations, going private transactions, reorganizations, debt restructurings and beneficial ownership reporting. In such role, Perry reviews and processes the filings, no-action and exemptive request letters made in connection with such transactions, responds to interpretative questions from the public and Commission staff and provides relevant training to the Division's operations staff.  Perry also participated in the drafting of the shareholder approval of executive compensation and golden parachute compensation rulemaking, adopted in January 2011. 

Prior to his position in the Office of Mergers and Acquisitions, Perry served as special counsel for a branch of the Division's disclosure operations, supervising and reviewing attorney-advisors' examinations of Securities Act and Exchange Act filings and confidential treatment requests made by domestic and foreign companies in the electronics, machinery and medical device industries. During his tenure in that office, Perry also served as a reviewer on the Division's 2007 executive compensation task force in charge of reviewing disclosure of 350 large market cap companies for compliance with the SEC's then recently adopted executive compensation rules. 

Before his role as special counsel to the electronics and machinery branch, Perry served as an attorney-advisor in the Division's disclosure operations, in both the oil, gas and natural resources branch and the information technologies and services branch. In addition to his review of Securities and Exchange Act filings, Perry assisted the Division's Office of Chief Counsel in the Division's 2004 shareholder proposal project. 

Prior to his service at the Commission, Perry practiced corporate law for over 5 years at large international and national law firms in New York, Washington, D.C. and northern Virginia in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, public and private corporate finance, venture capital and corporate governance.
