I was the head of White & Case from 2000-2007, and was head of the Firm's Bank Advisory Practice from 1981 to 2000 and am currently co-head with Ernie Patrikis.
My legal practice involves advising US and non-US banks and other financial institutions on the nature and structure of their operations and activities in the United States and abroad.
Most currently, I have been advising banks and other financial institutions in respect of the challenges they face arising from the worldwide financial crisis. These include the provisions and ramifications of the Volcker Rule and other regulations implementing the Dodd-Frank Act; capital requirements, leverage ratios, liquidity requirements and other prudential standards; and risk assessment and management. I also work with my white collar crime colleagues in dealing with governmental and internal investigations, governmental litigation and enforcement proceedings, and anti-money laundering, anti-bribery and sanctions matters.
I have also had experience in bank lending and credit transactions, project financing and international securities offerings. I was resident in the Firm's London office 1972-76 and 1980-81.
