Practice Areas

Gary DeWaal brings substantial experience from both industry and government to his practice counseling clients on exchange-traded derivatives and cryptoassets. He advises a worldwide client base on transactional and regulatory matters relating to those and other complex financial products. Gary's clients benefit from his deep well of contacts and practical knowledge from his prior work with the world's largest exchange-traded derivatives broker and, before that, as a senior trial attorney at the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).

Gary understands the urgency that drives the financial industry. His business background also gives him a unique understanding of his clients' products. This allows him to provide fast and practical responses to clients, often consulting directly with business executives as opposed to legal staff.

On multiple occasions, Gary's detailed knowledge of his clients' business has helped him prevail with regulators to close investigations before taking enforcement action. When a financial exchange was investigating one of his clients, a multinational investment bank, Gary went beyond avoiding disciplinary activity; he worked with the exchange to amend a rule predicated on an outdated trading environment to accommodate his client's current business.
