EU-U.S. Financial Services: Regulatory Disharmony And the Way Forward

21 October 2014

Over four years after the passage of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act in the United States, the European Union (EU) continues to adopt and implement sweeping reforms affecting European capital markets, banking, and insurance participants. Several of these reforms directly conflict with the Dodd-Frank Act and have the potential to significantly impact lending and investing in Europe, as well as the ability of European firms to do business in the U.S. The risk of future disharmony may grow even greater with a new European Parliament and Commission assuming office this year. 

On 21 October, a distinguished panel of K&L Gates partners from Brussels, Frankfurt, London, and Washington, D.C. provided an update on current financial services issues and how EU politics and policymakers will drive the financial services agenda going forward.

The panel’s experience in capital markets, banking, insurance, and financial services regulation and policy—on both sides of the Atlantic—provide an excellent opportunity for you to get up to speed on the latest issues and anticipate the roadblocks to come:

  • Sean P. Donovan-Smith, Partner, London
  • Ignasi Guardans, Partner, Brussels
  • Daniel F. C. Crowley, Partner, Washington, D.C.
