Debevoise & Plimpton’s Banking Enforcement & Litigation practice represents a diverse array of financial institutions on a comprehensive range of regulatory enforcement and related matters.
For more than a decade, the banking and financial services industries have been the target of unprecedented investigation, litigation and enforcement activity by authorities across the globe, and with the recent change in administration in Washington, D.C., federal enforcement activity is only likely to increase. Debevoise stands ready to represent our clients in their most complex and consequential matters, including:
Our depth of experience carries a high degree of credibility with regulators, which in turn results in practical advice that aids in negotiations with state and federal regulators and other parties involved in contentious matters.
We also have deep experience representing clients in their most high-stakes, high-profile Congressional investigations, including negotiating with committee staff to reduce our clients’ exposure, preparing witnesses to navigate difficult partisan hearings, and tailoring our clients’ messaging to the interests of individual members and the broader political landscape.
Our collaborative, cross-departmental firm culture, supported by our lockstep compensation model, means there are no impediments to accessing the most qualified Debevoise lawyers, in any practice and office, to deliver the best advice possible to our clients. Clients value and praise the quality of our work, our responsiveness, and the commercial judgment we bring to every representation.
