Clients depend on our insights about how existing and proposed regulation will impact their business.
We have long been a leader in financial regulatory advice. Our work spans areas including capital and liquidity standards for the largest banks; regulation of securities and derivatives intermediaries; BSA/AML and sanctions; and evolving rules for fintech and cryptocurrency activities. Clients regularly seek our assistance on comment letters and preparing for friendly and aggressive congressional hearings.
Our team combines deep regulatory experience with the practical insights of transactional lawyers. A number of our partners were formerly top regulators, senior in-house counsel of major financial institutions and Supreme Court law clerks, have authored or edited key texts on financial regulation and teach at the top law schools. Many find our visual, plain-English memos on regulatory developments to be an invaluable resource.
We form integrated teams with our colleagues in our White Collar Defense & Investigations practice to address enforcement and congressional investigation issues.
