King & Spalding has added Russell D. Sacks as a partner in the firm’s corporate, finance and investments practice group in its New York office. Sacks provides counsel on regulatory matters for broker-dealers, private banks, wealth management organizations, and asset managers.

“A seasoned practitioner, with a sophisticated practice, Russell is sought after by his clients to provide strategic advice on complex government regulations that impact their day-to-day operations, as well as their ability to grow their businesses,” said Todd Holleman, head of the firm’s CFI practice group. “His background fits into our strategy to expand our bank regulatory, SEC, and FINRA capabilities, which will benefit financial institutions, private equity firms, and hedge funds.”

“The collaborative culture that has been fostered among King & Spalding’s practice groups, and the investments made to support the success of its lawyers and its brand are why I joined the firm,” Sacks said. “I look forward to working with my new colleagues to continue offering specialized, differentiated, and high-value services that help clients achieve their objectives.”
