Kayvan Sadeghi has joined Jenner & Block as a partner in the firm’s securities litigation and enforcement practice, where he will focus on building out the firm’s blockchain work.

Sadeghi, a former Schiff Hardin partner who will be based in Jenner’s New York office, has nearly two decades of experience in complex commercial and securities litigation and investigations, the firm said in a Tuesday announcement. He is a member of the the Wall Street Blockchain Alliance’s legal working group and has taught cryptocurrency litigation, enforcement, and regulation.

Sadeghi’s previous clients include FirstEnergy Corporation and Dawson James Securities, according to a review of federal court dockets. He has also worked with the National Women’s Law Center TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund, and successfully defended a freelance journalist in a defamation case brought by a former top-Mexican official.

Sadeghi received his B.A. from Pomona College in Claremont, California, and received his J.D. from New York University School of Law.
