On Thursday, Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy announced that Douglas Landy, the former head of Allen & Overy’s U.S. financial services regulatory practice has joined Milbank. Landy joined Milbank’s New York office as a partner in the financial regulations and leveraged finance group of the law firm.
Milbank stated that Landy will be helping the firm’s financial services clients navigate federal and state regulation and legislative rulemaking.
Speaking on the occasion, Milbank Chairman Scott Edelman said “Doug Landy has for years practiced at the front lines of the regulatory regimes for many of the world’s top banks and financial institutions … His range of expertise and his experience have given him genuine star-power in the industry … We’re thrilled to share his talents and counsel with our own banking and financial services clients.”
Explaining his reasons to join Milbank, Landy said, “In recent years the firm has made an increasing mark in financial regulation, with a strong bench in Washington, to go with its offices in Europe, Asia and Latin America, as well as New York … In continuing to serve client needs, while building out a premier financial regulatory practice, I can’t think of a better place to broaden my practice than Milbank.”
Douglas Landy has been representing many of the most famous global financial institutions in U.S. regulatory matters. He helps financial institutions and corporate clients in their dealings with the Federal Reserve, SEC and other federal regulatory agencies. In a recent matter in 2012, Landy represented a group of more than two dozen foreign banks to challenge the proposed Volcker Rule provisions of Dodd-Frank.
Landy, who also served as a former staff attorney at the Federal Reserve Bank at New York, earned his J.D. cum laude in 1993 from Boston College and did his B.A. in 1989 from the University of Pennsylvania.
