Financial services regulation

Within: Financial services regulation

A perennial favourite for a vast array of financial services clients on many of their most pressing financial services regulation issues, Sullivan & Cromwell LLP displays an ‘unsurpassed breadth and depth’ of knowledge across standalone issues as well as regulatory-driven M&A activity in the industry. A ‘guru of the financial services regulation market’, Rodgin Cohen ‘shows no signs of slowing down’ and continues to be involved in many of the highest-profile financial services transactions in the market, including his work alongside Mitchell Eitel for First Horizon on its $2.2bn acquisition of Capital Bank Financial. Eitel also recently acted for NorthStar Asset Management Group on its $7bn all stock merger with NorthStar Realty Finance. The firm continues to cover the gamut of compliance and strategic work related to Dodd-Frank and in this regard, Whitney Chatterjee and Camille Orme have particular expertise advising foreign and domestic banks on Volcker Rule issues. The team has also been closely aligned to developments in the fintech sector where its client base includes both emerging entities as well as established banks looking to invest in start-ups in the sector. Recent highlights include advice in relation to the launch of Goldman Sachs Private Bank Select, a digital platform for making securities-based loans. Other recommended practitioners include Michael Wiseman, who is ‘vastly experienced’ across both standalone compliance matters and financial services M&A; Elizabeth Davy, who is noted for her anti-money laundering (AML) and sanctions expertise; Mark Menting, who has an excellent track record for handling financial services M&A and capital raisings; and Jared Fishman. Clients include Bank of China, JPMorgan Chase, Deutsche Bank and Barclays Bank.
