Get to Know Martha:

Martha Legg Miller was named the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s first director of the Office of the Advocate for Small Business Capital Formation in December 2018, leading the new office created by the SEC Small Business Advocate Act of 2016.

As the Advocate for Small Business, Miller oversees the office dedicated to advancing the interests of small businesses and their investors at the SEC and in the capital markets. The office is responsible for advocating for small businesses and their investors by conducting outreach to solicit views on relevant capital formation issues, providing assistance to resolve significant problems, analyzing the potential small business impact of proposed regulations and rules, and recommending changes to mitigate capital formation issues and promote the interests of small businesses and their investors.

Prior to joining the SEC, Miller was a partner at the law firm Balch & Bingham LLP in Birmingham, Alabama, where she represented companies and investors across a spectrum of corporate transactions.
