Financial Institutions Counseling
Counselling clients on the ever-changing landscape of financial services regulation is the core of our Banking and Financial Services practice. Our lawyers advise domestic and international clients on a daily basis on the ways in which complex federal and state banking and financial services laws may affect their businesses. With combined decades of experience, we focus on providing practical, proactive advice to address day-to-day regulatory questions. Sidley clients benefit from our knowledge of the decision-making processes of the various federal and state regulatory agencies and the latest developments in regulation, supervision and enforcement. The breadth of our practice for a wide range of traditional and non-traditional financial services providers also gives us insight into the variety of issues our clients may face and enables us to provide guidance that takes into account emerging business trends as well as changes driven by regulatory action. As regulatory standards evolve, we work with clients to formulate strategies for meeting business objectives in a compliant manner and to consider options for influencing the future direction of financial services regulatory policy. When clients face regulatory crises, we counsel them toward workable resolutions.
