Attorney Profile: Daphne Tippens Chisolm

Dedicated Securities Lawyer

Ms. Chisolm has practiced securities law for more than 15 years, having worked in the private sector both before and after her tenure in the federal government.

From 1999-2007, Ms. Chisolm worked for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the Division of Investment Management as senior counsel for the Office of Chief Counsel. In that position, she reviewed and analyzed requests for no-action and no-enforcement relief under the Investment Company Act of 1940 and the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. She also was responsible for drafting opinions, memoranda and letters concerning matters arising under the federal securities law.

Ms. Chisolm also served as an aide to an SEC Commissioner from 2002 to 2005, one of the busiest enforcement periods of the SEC’s history. It was in that position that she gained the insight needed to effectively represent investors in claims against broker-dealers.

Ms. Chisolm received her Juris Doctorate from Harvard Law School in 1994. She graduated with her Bachelors of Science degree in business administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1991.
