Providing unparalleled strategic advice to help our clients overcome regulatory challenges so they can focus on innovation, competition, marketplace developments, and profitability.
Domestic Regulatory Developments
We assist clients in understanding new legislation and regulations as well as the strategic threats—and opportunities—presented to their businesses by those changes. Our practice recently has focused on the Dodd-Frank Act and related congressional and regulatory activity, including from the Financial Stability Oversight Council, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Treasury Department, the Federal Reserve, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.
International Regulatory Developments
International standard-setting bodies are increasingly dictating policy changes, and globalization has ensured that national regulators all over the world must work together to harmonize their rules. We monitor relevant actions of the G-20, Financial Stability Board, Basel Committee, International Organization of Securities Commissions, the European Union supervisory authorities, including the European Securities and Markets Authority, European Banking Authority, and European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority. We help our clients anticipate and meet new legal and regulatory requirements wherever they may do business.
Strategic Public Policy Perspectives
Our team’s experience in senior federal regulatory agencies and legislative positions in Washington enables us to keep a trained ear to the ground and provide our clients with early and accurate insights about impending regulatory and legislative actions.
