Jay Clayton was the Chairman of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
from May 2017 to December 2020. Clayton focused on modernizing the
regulation and oversight of our equity and fixed income markets,
concentrating on the interests of long-term investors. In addition, under
his leadership, the women and men of the SEC addressed various market
developments and emerging risks, including the 2020 COVID-19 economic
shock, the digitization of securities and other assets, the Brexit and
LIBOR transitions, and various cybersecurity matters. Clayton was an active
member of the Financial Stability Board, the International Organization of
Securities Commissions, the Financial Stability Oversight Council and the
President’s Working Group on Financial Markets.

Prior to Clayton’s government service, he spent over 20 years at Sullivan &
Cromwell where he was a member of the management committee, co-managing
partner of the General Practice Group and co-head of the Cybersecurity
Group. He was a lead lawyer in an array of complex M&A and capital markets
transactions, as well as regulatory and governance matters, in the
financial, telecoms, energy, transportation and e-commerce sectors. Clayton
also advised a number of individuals in connection with their public and
private investments as well as transition matters.
