Me in a minute
We have worked hard to develop innovative solutions for our clients
The regulatory overhaul that followed the recent economic downturn has been an especially interesting time in my career. The simultaneous drives to close regulatory loopholes, collect information on an international scale and deputize industry participants (such as banks and funds) to verify compliance have created new and evolving risks. We have worked hard to develop innovative solutions designed to allow our clients to meet the ever-increasing regulatory burdens while attempting to minimize the impact on our clients' businesses and privacy.
I am a Trustee of the Museum of the City of New York and serve as the Museum's counsel. This fits in well with my favourite pastime of acting as an amateur historian. I'm particularly proud of the support the firm provides to the Museum.
