Aided by a significant offering in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, Latham & Watkins LLP’s US-based financial services regulation team is well-placed to advise banks, funds and securities firms on domestic matters, as well as on regulatory matters in a global context. Working closely with colleagues in the UK and Europe, the US team has developed a market leading reputation for advising on the global convergence of regulatory standards for leveraged lending (particularly the key differences between the US and ECB guidance). Alan Avery has been central to much of this work and as well as other standalone regulatory matters, including Volcker Rule guidance and advice on cryptocurrencies, also regularly provides the regulatory overlay to major M&A and capital markets mandates handled in the sector. Vivian Maese is noted for her ‘excellent advice’ on compliance matters and strategic fintech transactions; alongside Avery, Maese is acting for Cottonwood Vending, a Bitcoin ATM operator, on its application to the New York State Department of Financial Services to obtain a license to conduct virtual business activity in New York. Stephen Wink and Dana Fleischman both have excellent reputations on broker-dealer matters; Wink recently acted for Dynasty on the establishment of a novel real estate trading platform that allows for purchasing and selling investment real estate. Courtenay Myers Lima and former SEC international corporate finance chief Paul Dudek also handle capital markets-related regulatory work. The team was recently significantly strengthened on the payments front by the arrival in December 2017 of Todd Beauchamp from Paul Hastings LLP.
