“The need for comprehensive yet effective control functions is at an all time high.  I am committed to helping firms ensure they have a “best in class” control program that not only exists on paper, but is working, has been embedded in the firm's culture and is sustainable.

Patricia Solfaro has been assisting broker-dealers and investment advisers for the past 20 years with compliance matters and compliance programs, new business and product development and distribution, disputes, litigation, inquiries, investigations and regulatory enforcement matters.  She has served as a trusted advisor to senior management at various financial services firms over the years.  Prior to joining Bressler, Patricia was Managing Director and Head of Compliance for Barclays Wealth and Investment Management US.  She was also a member of the Executive Committee.
