Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its Global Banking Practice with the addition of Jonathan Rogers as a new partner in London.
"Banks continue to demand expert advice on regulatory regimes around the globe," said White & Case partner Eric Leicht, head of the Firm's Global Banking Practice. "As the head of his former firm's Financial Services Regulatory group in London, Jonathan is well positioned to step in and assist our large, sophisticated financial institution clients on the most complex regulatory issues they face."
Rogers advises financial institutions on the full range of FCA regulation with a particular focus on asset management, private banks, the payments industry and investment and lending platforms. His advice helps businesses obtain requisite licenses and establish their products and services, and he also advises clients on their governance and compliance arrangements as well as with implementing their products, services and key commercial solutions. With nearly 20 years of experience, Rogers joins White & Case from Taylor Wessing, where he was a partner from 2008 and head of the Financial Services Regulatory group in London.
"Jonathan will play a key role in our practice given his experience in financial regulatory matters, and as an important contributor to the support our Global Financial Institutions Industry Group provides to financial institutions clients on their transformative M&A matters and other deals," said White & Case partner David Plch, Regional Section Head, EMEA Banking. "The changing regulatory landscape, combined with the transition that the financial industry is undergoing due to traditional financial institutions embracing new financial and technological innovations and the emergence of new fintech players, makes the type of advice Jonathan provides crucial to our clients."
Partner Oliver Brettle, a member of White & Case's global Executive Committee, said: "The global financial institutions industry continues to be a target for the Firm's ongoing strategic growth, in London and globally. Our global financial institutions clients face growing cross-border regulatory challenges and have an increasing need for both non-contentious and contentious advice – the strategically aligned additions of Jonathan in London and Paul Saltzman in New York demonstrate our commitment to growing our global role advising on these matters. In London, Jonathan joins a strong financial regulatory team that includes, on the contentious side, recent lateral partner additions Chris Brennan and Laura Durrant and, on the non-contentious side, partner Stuart Willey and recent lateral partner Julia Smithers Excell."
