Trump Administration Legal Developments

The election of Donald J. Trump as President of the United States, coupled with Republican control of both chambers of Congress, will likely result in significant developments in U.S. financial-related laws and markets. The most sweeping changes will require legislation.  President Trump and the Republican-led Congress will also have numerous non-legislative means to reform and reshape financial and economic regulation broadly and within specific industries.

Through our program of memos, webinars, and other thought leadership and analysis, our multi-disciplinary team of experienced attorneys will provide clients with vital insight and practical guidance.
