As business and financial communities face new challenges because of recent dramatic economic events and as Congress and the Bush Administration reshape U.S. financial markets in Washington, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP has assembled a team of attorneys to help companies monitor, analyze, respond to, and participate in the development of the new financial environment and regulation.
The attorneys in Gibson Dunn’s Financial Markets Crisis Group have a broad range of experience in the areas of securities, finance, corporate, real estate, tax, bankruptcy, public policy and crisis management. As the Administration and Congress move forward to address the liquidity crisis and related problems, the firm’s Financial Markets Crisis Group will keep clients apprised of key developments and ensure that their voices are heard in the debate about how to repair the country’s financial infrastructure.
The Group will be coordinated by Michael Bopp, formerly Associate Director of the Office of Management and Budget and a partner in Gibson Dunn’s Washington, D.C. office.
“The regulatory framework is changing rapidly,” said Bopp. “New programs are being created, and new authorities now regulate the marketplace. Oversight hearings have begun and Congressional investigations are likely to follow. And there is more to come; there will be more change that will create new challenges and opportunities.”
“Gibson Dunn has the right combination of experience and expertise with Congressional oversight and investigative matters that can help companies navigate through the sweeping changes that are unfolding,” said Ken Doran, Chairman and Managing Partner of Gibson Dunn. “Our lawyers’ deep understanding of the inner workings of government, coupled with high-level contacts within and outside the government, will help us to provide key information quickly to our clients and to advocate effectively on their behalf.”
