Jina Choi

Chief, Corporate and Securities Fraud Section, U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of California

Jina L. Choi is a partner at Morrison & Foerster. Jina’s one-of-a-kind skillset allows her to provide clients with exceptional, comprehensive legal support. Her clients benefit from her in-depth knowledge and experience, most recently as a 16-year veteran of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), where she ultimately served as the Director of the San Francisco Regional Office of the SEC. There she helped to enforce many of the laws that govern the public and pre-IPO companies she now represents.

While many of Jina’s achievements as an SEC enforcement lawyer and federal prosecutor are public record, her current work in private practice is equally as impressive. She brings a formidable dedication to the rule of law and client advocacy. She represents and counsels companies on government and internal investigations, enforcement-related litigation, whistleblower complaints, and compliance programs.

In addition to her time at the SEC, Jina’s distinguished government experience includes serving as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Northern District of Texas, serving as a trial attorney in the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, and serving as a law clerk for the Honorable Robert P. Patterson, Jr., in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York. She also has experience in private practice at other large law firms.
