The Trump Administration: President Trump Issues Executive Actions on Dodd-Frank and the DOL Fiduciary Rule

Feb 06, 2017

On February 3, 2017, President Trump signed two executive actions intended to provide a framework for scaling back the Dodd-Frank Act (“Dodd-Frank Act”)  and rescinding or revising the Department of Labor’s “fiduciary rule.” 

As we have previously written, President Trump and the Republican-majority Congress have various levers to rapidly revise and reverse the previous administration’s policies, short of legislative change.  Such mechanisms include the Congressional Review Act  and various forms of executive action, including executive orders, discretionary agency directives and enforcement decisions.  These executive actions are likely the beginning of a series of changes intended to reduce the regulatory burden on U.S. financial markets.

This memorandum discusses the two executive actions and their significance within a broader agenda to reshape financial regulation.

US and UK Regulators Speak Out on Anti-Corruption Enforcement Trends and Priorities

Dec 06, 2016


A number of key trends and priorities in international anti-corruption enforcement emerged last week at the 33rd ACI International Conference on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, held November 29 – December 2 outside of Washington, DC. Leading prosecutors and regulators from the US and UK described skyrocketing international law enforcement coordination, announced both “sticks” and “carrots” to encourage self-disclosure and cooperation, and pledged again to hold individuals accountable for anti-corruption violations. Officials from the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and the UK Serious Fraud Office (SFO) repeatedly emphasized these points in both their prepared remarks and their responses to questions.
