Led out of Washington DC by Richard Schaberg, Hogan Lovells US LLP’s financial institutions regulatory practice benefits from strong ties to regulatory officials and is well placed to advise clients on an array of bank regulatory matters, as well as on regulatory-driven transactional mandates. Schaberg recently advised Westfield Financial on its $110m merger with Chicopee Savings Bank to create the largest locally managed bank in Hampden County, Massachusetts. In addition to traditional bank regulatory work, the firm has been increasingly active within the fintech space, including advising Santander as it seeks to invest in start-ups through its recently launched fintech fund. The firm’s strong ties to many institutions within the community banking arena has led to a raft of work as such entities also seek to develop a greater presence in the fintech space; examples include its work for BancAlliance, a network of community banks, in its response to a recent White Paper issued by the OCC regarding responsible innovation in the federal banking system. Schaberg is also acting for BancAlliance in its partnership with online small business direct lender Fundation on the development of an innovative fintech platform enabling small businesses and banks to connect with each other through a Fundation software platform. Greg Parisi and Stuart Stein are also key members of the team, which was strengthened by the arrival in May 2016 of former commissioner of the Federal Trade Commission Julie Brill, who adds weight to the firm’s capability in data privacy and cybersecurity matters.
