Financial institution clients benefit from Arnold & Porter LLP’s extensive litigation resources and experience. In addition to a variety of financial institutions, our clients include officers and directors, law firms, accounting firms, other experts and consultants, and parties having dealings with failed institutions. We have represented such clients in enforcement proceedings brought by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and financial regulatory bodies, as well as in criminal investigations and trials. For example, Arnold & Porter successfully represented in a criminal trial an attorney charged with malfeasance with regard to the failure of a financial institution. Arnold & Porter also successfully represented a major Wall Street firm in parallel federal, state, and SEC criminal investigations of its clearing practices, a matter that was closely watched by the securities industry.
