David Becker, who quit as Securities and Exchange Commission general counsel before he was sued over inherited profits from Bernard Madoff’s fraud, has rejoined the law firm where he worked before taking the SEC post.

Becker, 63, returned to Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP to focus on securities enforcement, corporate governance, internal investigations and financial regulation, the firm said today in a statement. Becker, who will be based in Washington, left the SEC in February after two years in the position.
