Jina Choi spoke to the Daily Journal about Erin E. Schneider, the director of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) San Francisco regional office since May 2019, leaving her post at the end of the month.
Jina, who was Schneider’s predecessor as director of the San Francisco SEC regional office, said Schneider is an excellent lawyer.
