expansion; broker-dealer registration and material changes in business operations; the treatment of new financial products under regulatory capital requirements; and legal risks in cross-border payment and securities settlement systems.
Many of our current and former lawyers have held prominent positions at the Treasury Department, Federal Reserve, SEC, OCC, FDIC, OTS, OFAC and other government regulators and SROs.
