The firm's new practice group, which is composed of approximately 50 lawyers from several offices, including New York, Washington, Chicago, Houston and London, allows Mayer Brown to meet the rapidly-changing and growing needs of our banking, securities, investment management, insurance and other financial institution clients.

"Our multidisciplinary team of lawyers provides integrated strategic solutions to the full range of financial services regulatory and enforcement issues," said James D.
