Elizabeth Baird, a top U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission lawyer who earlier served as co-managing partner of the Morgan, Lewis & Bockius office in Washington, earned nearly $1.8 million at the firm since January 2017 while representing some of the largest U.S. banks, according to a financial disclosure released Tuesday.

Baird was named in July as a deputy director of the SEC’s division of trading and markets, an office that oversees broker-dealers along with self-regulated organizations such as the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and stock exchanges.
