Chambers and Partners honored Sidley as the “Financial Services Regulation Firm of the Year” at the Chambers USA 2019 Awards. The 2019 Chambers USA guide praised the firm for its “noted representation of broker-dealer clients in connection with regulatory examinations, investigations and enforcement actions,” as well as its “extensive experience across a range of securities and broker-dealer matters, including the most technical aspects of equity markets, alternative trading systems and municipal securities.” The guide further praised Sidley for its “highly respected consumer finance practice,” which covers a broad range of matters including the establishment of innovative payment systems.
The Chambers team selected winners based on data collected over the past 12 months. Firms that impressed their researchers the most in terms of the quality of feedback and caliber of work were selected for recognition. The annual Chambers USA guide provides objective analysis of legal practitioners in the United States based on in-depth interviews with clients and in-house counsel.
