Prior to joining the firm, Ben was the Deputy Staff Director for the House Oversight Committee, where he was responsible for the day-to-day operations of one of the largest and most active committees in Congress. In this role, he oversaw the committee’s legislative strategy, litigation portfolio, and several high-profile investigations.


Before joining the Oversight Committee, Ben worked on the House Financial Services Committee, where he managed and directed the operations of the Subcommittee on Investor Protection, Entrepreneurship, and Capital Markets as former Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney’s (D-NY) counsel and designee. In this role, he successfully secured bipartisan support for a number of financial services bills that were signed into law, including a range of securities bills, the reauthorization of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act, and bills addressing bank capital requirements.
