The Group is an integral part of the firm’s transactional and litigation capabilities and regularly handles major compliance challenges, enforcement proceedings and litigation, as well as marquee M&A transactions, financings and an array of other complex transactions. In 2015, the team was named “Financial Services Team of the Year” by Legal 500 US. It is also ranked as a leading practice by Chambers USA, Chambers UK, IFLR, SNL Financial and others in the Americas, Europe and Asia.
A key strength of the practice lies in the Group’s deep market knowledge of the insurance and banking sectors and its long experience counseling financial services clients on complex banking, insurance, securities, broker-dealer and investment management matters.
The Group’s corporate team has significant experience in the establishment and authorization of regulated financial institutions and has worked on a broad range of transactional and regulatory compliance issues. The Group’s litigators handle an array of complex matters in courts in the U.S., UK, France and elsewhere, and also regularly appear before agencies, administrative bodies and arbitration tribunals worldwide.
In recent years, the team has been immersed in strategic and compliance issues flowing from the Dodd-Frank Act and other U.S. and international financial reform efforts. As noted in Chambers USA, Debevoise is at the “cutting edge of regulatory advisory and transactional work.”
