Senator Warner's Banking Aide Joining Law Firm in WashingtonBy
The top banking aide to U.S. Senator Mark Warner is leaving Capitol Hill to join the Washington office of law firm Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, a person familiar with the matter said.
Milan Dalal, who has been the Virginia lawmaker’s financial policy counsel for more than four years, will advise financial services firms and other companies on policy and regulation, according to the person, who wasn’t authorized to speak publicly on the move. Warner is the top Democrat on the Senate Banking subcommittee that oversees regulators including the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Dalal, who advised Warner on matters including economic policy, equity market structure issues and housing-finance reform, has also worked for Representative Gregory Meeks, a New York Democrat. An Iowa native, Dalal also has advised Warner on tax and trade issues.
Brownstein is also one of the biggest lobbying firms in Washington and represents a range of Wall Street firms. Clients include private equity giant Apollo Global Management LLC, mutual fund company Fidelity Investments and Wells Fargo & Co.’s independent directors, according to federal disclosure documents.
