With ‘deep experience in the financial services industry, Debevoise & Plimpton LLP provides ‘strategic and practical advice‘ to a diverse array of clients, including investment and regional banks, insurance companies and funds. The team has developed a strong reputation for its work on behalf of foreign banks on the extraterritorial impact of US regulations. In this context, the ‘skilful and knowledgeable‘ David Portilla is advising the European Banking Federation in its response to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency’s (OCC) request for public comment on how the Volcker Rule implementing regulations should be revised and on related ongoing advocacy efforts. Co-head Gregory Lyons handles a broad array of standalone regulatory work and M&A-related regulatory issues; he provides ongoing advice to Risk Management Association on the development and implementation of the global stay resolution protocols that the US and foreign governments are requiring to be implemented to protect bank and broker-dealer counterparties in securities finance transactions. ‘An expert on all areas of financial regulation‘, Washington DC-based Satish Kini  is also a key member of the team and, alongside Lyons and Portilla, recently acted for Credit Suisse on the migration of its primary dealer from its broker-dealer to branch. The team was enhanced on the broker-dealer regulatory front by the arrival in June 2018 of Jeffrey Robins  from Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP. Other clients include American Express, Bank of New York Mellon, Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley. Named attorneys are based in New York, unless otherwise indicated.
