The Financial Institutions Regulation and Enforcement Group at Skadden regularly advises on the full range of regulatory, enforcement and legislative matters affecting banks, thrifts, securities firms, funds, nonbank lenders, insurance companies and other financial services firms.
Our clients frequently call on us to counsel on investigations and resolutions of actions by federal and state regulatory agencies, mergers and acquisitions, capital raising and corporate finance transactions, and charter formations. We also advise on compliance with Dodd-Frank regulatory reform legislation and related rulemaking, including regarding Volcker Rule, resolution planning and enhanced prudential standards. Skadden has experience working with every major U.S. federal and state regulator of financial services, as well as the financial regulators of many European jurisdictions.
The group regularly advises clients in ongoing developments affecting the financial sector, including in connection with regulatory enforcement actions, civil and criminal investigations, troubled banks and the FDIC, private equity investment, legislative proposals and subprime-related litigation.
