Financial Services Regulatory

Clients count on Dorsey for advice on a broad range of compliance issues including credit, debit and stored value cards; payment systems; product development; financing products; regulatory and enforcement actions; restrictions on sales of securities; mutual funds; insurance; and commodities. Federal and state restrictions have grown beyond traditional banking, broker-dealer, investment company, investment adviser and other requirements and now include anti-money laundering, anti-terrorism, privacy and other objectives that are broad in scope and expanding.

  • Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System
  • U.S. Treasury Department (including the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Foreign Assets Control and the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network)
  • Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
  • Securities and Exchange Commission
  • New York Stock Exchange
  • State banking, insurance and securities regulators
  • Federal and state courts across the United States
