I come from a family of teachers, and I believe an important part of being an attorney is educating your clients on their cases and their options. At this point in my career, I’m still emphasizing education by passing along my institutional knowledge to younger attorneys.
During her highly regarded legal career that has spanned six decades, Faith Colish focused on advising broker-dealers and investment advisors on regulatory matters. In addition to financial services, Faith’s practice has encompassed issues in the areas of securities, corporate, internal investigations, white collar defense, and cybersecurity and data privacy.
As she prepares to wrap up daily duties as a lawyer, Faith oversees the orderly transfer of her practice to other CLM attorneys and advising them in matters in which she has deep experience. Faith keeps herself available to answer questions from the lawyers who are taking over her work and remains on call to discuss issues with firm clients or prospective clients as needed.
Known for her deep knowledge and extensive experience in securities law, Faith draws on her background with the Securities and Exchange Commission as she continues to read and analyze securities-related information and distribute relevant material to the people who would most benefit from it.
Faith excels at helping people navigate through a byzantine maze of facts and data so they can formulate an essential question that gets to the heart of the topic they’re struggling to understand. She carries this teaching technique with her as she increases her participation in bar association task forces and undertakes pro bono work.
