Biography

Doron Ezickson's energy and commodities practice involves a wide array of U.S. and EU regulatory and compliance issues relating to the development and operation of wholesale energy and agriculture markets and related financial products. Experienced in regulatory and enforcement matters before the CFTC and FERC, Doron is actively involved in counseling commodities clients on the domestic and extraterritorial impact of The Dodd-Frank Act and on EU regulatory proposals including MIFID II, EMIR, REMIT and MAD.

Doron has been involved in numerous U.S. and EU government proceedings concerning the transition to competitive commodities markets, the design and operation of both physical and financial markets, market competition and manipulation issues and disputes over market structure and operations. He regularly conducts compliance training on commodities regulatory issues relating to trading futures, swaps and physical commodities and is experienced at internal investigations on issues of concern to energy and agriculture physical and financial trading operations.

A frequent author and lecturer on commodities topics, Doron has been recognized as a leading lawyer by Chambers Europe and in Marquis Who's Who in American Law, and has achieved an AV peer rating, the highest peer review rating compiled by Martindale Hubbell. He is a member of the FIA Law and Compliance Committee, the FOA and the Energy Bar Association.

Formerly the Deputy Chief of Staff/Chief of Operations to former Massachusetts Governor William F. Weld, Doron was responsible for management of the governor's office operations, coordination of Cabinet activities, and policy development and implementation, including energy and environmental policy. He is also the former executive director of the Massachusetts Office of International Trade and Investment.

Doron received his B.A. from Dartmouth College and his J.D., magna cum laude, from Boston University School of Law, where he was an articles editor for the Boston University Law Review. Following law school, he served as a law clerk for the D.C. Circuit of the United States Court of Appeals. He is admitted to practice in Washington, D.C., Massachusetts and Pennsylvania (inactive), and is a member of the bar of the U.S. Supreme Court, the DC Circuit Court of Appeals and several additional appellate and district courts. Doron practiced commodities law in London as a foreign registered attorney from 2006 to 2012.
