The Senate Banking Committee's Republican chief counsel and deputy staff director, Andrew Olmem, joined the law firm Venable as a partner.

Olmem, who has worked on the committee for seven years, was a lead negotiator during the writing of Dodd-Frank.

"Congress and financial regulators are still actively considering market-changing reforms that will impact the entire financial services industry," Ronald Glancz, who heads the law firm's financial services practice group, said in a statement. "From the ongoing Congressional debate over housing finance to the implementation of Dodd-Frank rules, financial reform is far from over."
