Led by former Comptroller of the Currency John Dugan, Covington & Burling LLP’s Washington DC-based team provides ‘pragmatic and insightful’ advice to clients on compliance issues related to the wave of regulations that have been ushered in since the credit crisis, as well as on the regulatory aspects of transactions within the industry. Dugan regularly counsels major trade associations on the implications of new legislation affecting the industry and is also adept at helping them respond to potential changes through comment letters; he recently advised the Futures Industry Association on the Basel Committee’s proposals regarding the treatment of segregated margin in leverage ratio calculations. Ed Yingling represents Wells Fargo across a broad range of legislative issues, including housing finance, the Dodd-Frank Act, and bank capital and liquidity requirements. Mark Plotkin and Michael Nonaka have significant fintech expertise and are representing American Express in various financial regulatory projects, including unclaimed property, financial privacy and consumer reporting. The team also includes the vastly experienced senior counsel Stuart Stock - who remains active across a range of strategic bank regulatory matters - in addition to Andrew Smith and Eric Mogilnicki, who co-head the consumer finance practice. Keith Noreika joined Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP in August 2016.
