Based out of New York and aided by a broad international footprint that encompasses offices in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, Latham & Watkins LLP’s team is well equipped to handle domestic and multi-jurisdictional regulatory matters for banks, broker-dealers, investment funds and specialty finance companies. Alan Avery has a formidable reputation for bank regulatory matters and continues to work alongside the London office to provide Volcker Rule advice to numerous global investment banks in their roles as underwriters of notes in the European markets, including JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs. Alongside Courtenay Myers Lima, Avery has also been advising Bank of China on its resolution planning requirements. In addition to traditional bank regulatory matters, the team has successfully adapted to the increased upswing of fintech-related matters and, under the guidance of Vivian Maese in particular, has handled numerous cutting-edge mandates, such as advising Credit Suisse on its joint venture with Palantir Technologies, which, through the use of big data analytics tools, is aimed at detecting unauthorized trading in the financial services industry. This matter also involved input from broker-dealer specialists Dana Fleischman and Stephen Wink. Wink also recently provided the regulatory input to German bank Bankhaus Lampe on its acquisition of a US broker-dealer.
