Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its Global Financial Services Regulatory (FSR) Practice with the arrival of Douglas Landy as a partner in New York. The Firm's FSR Practice is an integral part of its Global Debt Finance Practice, and Landy’s addition reflects the Firm's continued commitment to expanding its already significant global FSR capabilities.
"As the demand for financial regulatory advice continues to grow, we are delighted to add an outstanding talent such as Doug to our practice," said Eric Leicht, Head of White & Case's Global Debt Finance Practice. "Doug is one of the most experienced and sought-after regulatory and fintech lawyers in the US market. In an increasingly dynamic regulatory landscape, his expertise will be of tremendous benefit to our clients."
Landy specializes in banking and securities laws, and is highly regarded for his work as an adviser to many significant banks and financial institutions, industry advocate groups and central counterparties in the 2008 financial crisis, and throughout the subsequent period of Dodd-Frank adoption. He has an acknowledged skillset in fields such as the Volcker Rule, capital requirements, bank insolvency issues, foreign banking in the US, and payment/settlement and clearing issues. He is also renowned in the fintech space as a leading figure in advising banks, nonbanks, exchanges and clearinghouses on the integration of blockchain technology into existing financial services transactions and payments. He has also recently played a leading role in advising nonbanks on their options for becoming regulated banking entities.
"Doug has a strong track record in financial regulatory and compliance matters, combined with a wealth of knowledge in the fintech industry," said Jake Mincemoyer, White & Case's Regional Section Head of Americas Banking. "His arrival reinforces our established platform in these areas, and further deepens the bench strength of expertise available to our clients who are looking to adopt new and emerging financial technologies."
Prior to private practice, Landy was a staff attorney at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. He joins White & Case from Milbank, where he led the firm's regulatory and fintech practices.
