Gabriel D. Rosenberg

Mr. Rosenberg is an associate in Davis Polk’s Financial Institutions Group. He advises financial institutions, corporations and trade associations on the requirements, impact and implementation of the Dodd-Frank financial reform legislation. In this area, he focuses on the regulatory treatment, trading and clearing of derivatives and the Volcker Rule proprietary trading restrictions. He is a core member of Davis Polk’s team advising a large group of U.S. and foreign banks on the development of Volcker Rule compliance policies and procedures, and SIFMA on swap and Volcker Rule issues.

In his practice, Mr. Rosenberg seeks to use technology to help market participants understand and implement Dodd-Frank. By advancing the Davis Polk Regulatory Tracker and the Davis Polk Volcker Portal, Mr. Rosenberg has worked closely with major financial institutions to help them employ new technology to closely monitor and refine implementation plans for Dodd-Frank strategic business planning and compliance. Through development of the Dodd-Frank Progress Reports, he has helped the market understand and gauge regulator progress on Dodd-Frank rulemaking through quantitative and graphical analysis.

Mr. Rosenberg is co-editor of OTC Derivatives Regulation Under Dodd-Frank: A Guide to Registration, Reporting, Business Conduct and Clearing, the first comprehensive treatise on the new swap regulatory regime under Title VII of the Dodd-Frank Act. He holds an academic appointment at the Yale School of Management, where he teaches a course, cross-listed at the Yale Law School, on the regulation of financial institutions and activities after the financial crisis.
