George M. Williams jr is special counsel in the New York office of Kaye Scholer’s Finance Department. He advises clients with regard to banking, securities and commodities law questions, including matters relating to the regulation of US and non-US banks and other lending institutions by federal and New York State authorities, bank lending documentation, FinTech and marketplace lending, anti-money laundering regulation, the law of secured transactions, and the regulation of broker-dealers, swap dealers, major swap participants, asset-backed securitization vehicles, commodity pools and investment companies. As a member of the TriBar Opinion Committee and various legal opinion committees and subcommittees of the American Bar Association, he advises regarding legal opinion practice.
Some of the more specific kinds of matters as to which Mr. Williams advises clients are the structuring of transactions and compliance procedures in response to the Volcker Rule and the European and US versions of risk-retention requirements, issues that may arise in connection with a determination that a company is systemically important, bank capital and liquidity requirements, investments, affiliations, bank securities activities and anti-tying rules under the Bank Holding Company Act and compliance with swaps and commodity pool regulation. Because of his language interests, Mr. Williams often advises about the interaction of US and EU financial regulation.
