Ruth Epstein, a leading securities and investment management lawyer, has joined Stradley Ronon in its Washington office. Ms. Epstein was previously a partner in the financial services and investment management group at Dechert LLP. She is the fifth lawyer from a top 100 firm to join Stradley Ronon’s Washington office in the past 12 months.

Ms. Epstein has more than 30 years of corporate, securities and financial services experience. She focuses on complex issues faced by participants in the investment management and variable insurance products industries. Following a federal clerkship with the Hon. William Wayne Justice, Ms. Epstein started her career at the Securities and Exchange Commission, first in the Division of Enforcement and then in the General Counsel’s Office.  She has been in private practice in Washington since 1984.

 “Ruth’s reputation as a leading lawyer in the funds industry precedes her,” said Stradley Ronon chairman William R. Sasso. “Her experience further strengthens our nationally recognized investment management practice and expands our financial services capabilities.”
