Cadwalader was recognized with the 2020 International Financial Law Review (IFLR) Americas Financial Services Regulatory Team of the Year award.
“We’re committed to offering clients unmatched market knowledge and exceptional service,” said Scott Cammarn, co-chair of Cadwalader’s Financial Services Group. “This work is a core competency for us, and we’re excited to be recognized as best in class.”
IFLR describes Cadwalader as “one of the high-profile firms in 2019 in the field of financial regulation.” The publication highlights the firm’s LIBOR Preparedness team and its work with the Federal Reserve’s Alternative Reference Rates Committee on the transition of cash products away from LIBOR, as well as Cadwalader’s “leading role in relation to the Dodd-Frank Act.”
The firm’s Financial Regulatory Group advises clients on virtually all financial law-related statutory and regulatory requirements, including those governing U.S. and foreign banks and bank holding companies, commercial and consumer finance companies, broker-dealers, securities and futures exchanges, swap dealers, clearing corporations, investment advisers, funds and pension plans. Cadwalader lawyers provide advice across the full range of transactions and products with respect to registration and licensing, compliance, capital treatment, reporting, examinations and enforcement.
This marks the second time in six years that Cadwalader has been named the IFLR Financial Services Regulatory Team of the Year. Earlier this year, Cadwalader received a Law360 Practice Group of the Year award in the Banking category.
“Earning the trust and respect of our clients is instrumental to our success,” said Financial Services Group co-chair Richard Schetman. “We’re fortunate to be working with many of the world’s leading corporations and financial institutions.”
