WASHINGTON, D.C., 7 March 2011 – Hogan Lovells US LLP announced today that Daniel S. Meade has rejoined the Corporate practice as a partner in Washington, D.C., having completed his work as Senior Counsel to the U.S. House Committee on Financial Services.
As Senior Counsel to the U.S. House Committee on Financial Services, Meade served as an advisor to the Committee's Chairman, and was a principal draftsperson of substantial portions of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protections Act, and the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010. He also actively drafted and analyzed legislation and coordinated oversight functions within the Committee's jurisdiction, particularly with regard to bank, thrift and holding company safety and soundness, capital requirements, transactions with affiliates, industrial loan companies, deposit insurance, consumer protection, and the Community Reinvestment Act.
At Hogan Lovells, Meade will resume his practice representing financial services entities and other entities impacted by the regulation of those entities in connection with a broad range of regulatory and transactional matters, including issues related to the Dodd-Frank Act and all other financial regulatory matters, as well as mergers and acquisitions, anti-money laundering, financial privacy, and enforcement matters.
"We are thrilled to welcome Dan back to Hogan Lovells," said Hogan Lovells Co-CEO Warren Gorrell. "Dan brings instant marquee credentials in interpreting and implementing the most significant legislative and financial regulatory developments on the Hill. We are proud of his work on behalf of the House Committee on Financial Services and are confident that his experiences will benefit our clients and drive the growth of our financial regulatory practice."
According to Stuart Stein, Global Co-head of Hogan Lovells' Corporate practice, "As the Dodd-Frank Act rules take shape, our current and prospective clients will actively need our advice and counsel. Dan's first hand understanding of the Dodd-Frank Act, coupled with his years of experience at the Federal Reserve Board and in private practice will be invaluable to our clients."
Hogan Lovells' Corporate practice represents banks, brokers, insurers, asset managers, investment funds, regulators, and other market participants, large and small, on their most complex and challenging regulatory issues and transactions. The Corporate team assists clients with the full range of legal and regulatory issues confronting them, from the establishment of investment funds, insurance finance, consumer finance, outsourcing, product distribution, and payment systems to mergers and acquisitions in the financial services sector.
Earlier in his career, Meade served as a counsel to the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System in Washington, D.C.
Meade holds a J.D. from The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law, an L.L.M from Boston University School of Law’s Morin Center for Banking and Financial Law, and a B.A. from Providence College.
