Firm Overview:
With lawyers in Washington, DC, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Chicago, and London, Buckley LLP offers premier enforcement, litigation, compliance, regulatory, and transactional services to financial services institutions, as well as leading and early stage companies, joint ventures, private equity funds, and individual clients throughout the world.

Main Areas of Practice:

Focus on Financial Services:
Buckley provides a full suite of regulatory, enforcement, litigation, and transactional services. The firm’s clients include 21 of the 25 largest banks in the US, as well as top card issuers, mortgage and auto lenders, and loan servicers. It also represents numerous community and regional banks, fintech companies, and investors, including private equity, venture capital, and joint venture firms. Buckley’s mission is to help clients that are facing extensive regulatory requirements and heightened government scrutiny overcome those challenges in a way that allows them to achieve their business goals. The ability to help clients succeed in an intense regulatory atmosphere has propelled Buckley to become an acknowledged leader in this field.

Focus on Litigation:
Buckley litigators are creative and aggressive advocates who are prepared to go to trial and win — and have done so repeatedly. The firm’s white collar and financial crimes lawyers focus on cases involving the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act; False Claims Act; Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act; Bank Secrecy Act; Office of Foreign Assets Control requirements; antimoney laundering; fraud; and securities laws. Buckley has an expansive Complex Civil Litigation practice that handles the most sensitive and significant matters for major corporations and financial services firms, and encompasses a wide range of capabilities, including class actions, arbitrations, and appellate matters. Whether inside the courtroom or at the settlement table, Buckley attorneys have developed a reputation for their ability to obtain the best results possible, often under the most challenging of circumstances.

Focus on Government Enforcement:
Buckley lawyers have decades of experience handling the most complex legal challenges of our corporate and individual clients. Many of the firm’s lawyers have significant government experience, including in senior appointed positions, giving them firsthand knowledge of the workings of a wide range of federal agencies, such as the Department of Justice (including the United States Attorney’s Offices for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York and the District of Columbia), Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, US Securities and Exchange Commission, Federal Trade Commission, and various US Senate and House committees.Through its deep knowledge of governmental regulatory issues, enforcement trends, and changes in the law, Buckley has become known as ‘the firm that can see around the corner’ because its attorneys are able to assess realistically what these agencies will be looking for next. As a result, clients rely on Buckley not just to assist them when in a government agency’s crosshairs,but also to advise them on how best to avoid unnecessary governmental investigations and entanglements. The goal of the firm’s attorneys is to help banks, financial services institutions, and fintech companies synthesize their various disciplines into a uniform narrative that resonates with regulators, customers, and shareholders.
