Regulatory Advice

For both financial and commercial clients, our regulatory lawyers provide sophisticated and comprehensive advice on all aspects of financial services law. We regularly appear before all of the major U.S. federal and state regulatory agencies, which enables us to stay at the forefront of regulatory developments and interpretations.

In addition to understanding the regulatory environment, we appreciate our clients’ business imperatives and are able to offer professional, commercial advice and sound judgment. Our practice advises on a comprehensive range of regulatory issues, including:

  • Dodd-Frank Act and its implementing regulations, including the Volcker Rule
  • Foreign bank operations in the United States
  • Basel III capital requirements
  • Bank insolvency law
  • Affiliate transaction restrictions
  • Margin regulations
  • Commodity and derivatives trading activities
  • Capital regulations
  • Privacy laws
  • Enforcement actions by federal and state banking agencies
  • Applications for domestic and cross-border merger transactions, new operating and “shelf” charters, and the exercise of new banking and related powers
