Gregory Baer, a deputy general counsel at Bank of America Corp., is leaving the Charlotte-based firm to join JPMorgan Chase & Co. as managing director and general counsel in the bank's corporate and global regulatory division.
Baer, a former Treasury Department official in the Clinton administration, joined B of A in 2006 and served as one of its top regulatory and policy advisors. His role at JPMorgan Chase, which he is due to start at the end of the month, is expected to be similar.
Baer was previously a partner at the law firm of Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr, representing companies on financial regulatory and enforcement matters.
From 1997 to 2001, he was Treasury assistant secretary for financial institutions and was previously managing senior counsel to the Federal Reserve Board.
