Debevoise & Plimpton secures new PB legal expert


Law firm Debevoise & Plimpton has bolstered its legal team focusing on broker-dealers and securities financing regulatory matters with the appointment of David Aman.

Aman has joined as a member of its corporate department and financial institutions group. He was previously a partner at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton.

Debevoise & Plimpton described Aman as an experienced adviser to broker-dealers, other financial institutions and their counterparties on a broad range of product, transaction, insolvency and regulatory matters.

He has also represented leading financial institutions and trade associations on a wide range of matters stemming from broker-dealer and margin regulations.

Lee Schneider, head of Debevoise & Plimpton’s broker-dealer regulatory practice, said: “Our broker-dealer clients require increasingly sophisticated products and other solutions to help them succeed in the current regulatory environment, and David Aman has consistently demonstrated the ability to help them meet their objectives.”

“David's addition, particularly when integrated with the strong banking, insurance, derivatives and other practices in our financial institutions group, will further strengthen our position as a leading adviser to the most sophisticated broker-dealers and other financial institutions in the industry.”

Aman commented: “Broker-dealers continue to face new challenges and opportunities in the ever evolving financial services landscape."

“I'm thrilled to coordinate with Debevoise & Plimpton's talented team of lawyers across the financial services spectrum to serve the needs of our clients."
