The Banking Group of Debevoise & Plimpton LLP has revised the name and expanded the scope of its blog, now titled “The Debevoise FinReg and FinTech Blog.” The revamped client tool will cover a broader range of regulatory topics impacting the financial sector, particularly in the wake of the recent failures of Silicon Valley Bank, Signature Bank and First Republic Bank.
The blog will continue to cover the fintech and digital assets regulatory landscape, and will also cover financial regulatory and supervisory developments relating to bank resolution, capital and liquidity, tailoring, governance, financial stability, mergers and acquisitions, enforcement, AML/sanctions, compliance, consumer banking and more.
The goal of the blog remains to help financial institutions sift through the complex legal landscape and keep abreast of important regulatory developments.
Ranked among the leading practices in the United States, the Debevoise Banking Group advises banks and other financial institutions on the gamut of regulatory, litigation and transactional matters. As banking industry regulation has proliferated in the wake of the financial crisis, the Debevoise Banking Group has grown to more than 20 lawyers with experience that spans the landscape of regulatory regimes and agencies. The practice advises financial industry clients on mergers and acquisitions, U.S. and international regulatory and compliance issues, enforcement matters, capital markets activities, new product development, ESG, digital assets and cryptocurrency-related activities.
