Assisting a major financial institution with respect to regulatory issues arising from acquisition of credit card business of primary investment bank.
Long before other firms in Italy established a financial regulatory practice, Jeffrey Greenbaum was capitalizing on his international financial regulatory background to assist clients in operating effectively in the evolving European and Italian financial regulatory landscape. In his practice, Jeffrey Greenbaum interacts daily with financial regulators in developing and interpreting financial regulation. Recognised as a leader in European and Italian financial regulation, Jeffrey Greenbaum provides assistance across the broad spectrum of financial regulations including the areas of mutual funds, payment services, investment service, banking regulation, and insurance.
With his decades-long experience in the area and his understanding of the whys and wherefores of international financial regulatory developments, Jeff proactively guides his clients before new regulations enter into effect. He makes sure that the voice of his clients is heard in developing legislation. And, when necessary, helps clients effectively deal with regulations that may be challenging for them. Jeff works for his clients with regulators at the pre-legislation phase, consultation phase, upon implementation and has also successfully represented clients in modifying problematic provisions of existing legislation.
Given his standing in the industry, Jeff has been able to offer roundtables for his clients with representatives of all the major financial regulators in Italy. Jeffrey is qualified in Italy, the United Kingdom and the United States. He participated as an invited guest of the European Commission in its private placement workshops in Brussels. He clerked for the President of the Italian Constitutional Court from 1985 to 1987 and has occupied the most important positions – including Chairman – in the International Financial Services and Products Committee within the International Law Section of the American Bar Association.
