Jarryd Anderson provides bank regulatory advice to domestic and international banking organizations, fintechs, technology companies, and other financial institutions on transactional, regulatory, supervisory, and enforcement matters.

He leverages his years of experience in government at the Federal Reserve and in-house at a leading trade association and two globally systemically important banks to deliver sophisticated, practical advice on complex regulatory issues.

Jarryd’s experience spans all aspects of the regulatory framework, from traditional bank regulatory issues to emerging regulatory and legislative developments in financial innovation. He regularly counsels on issues arising under key U.S. banking laws, including the Dodd-Frank Act, the Bank Holding Company Act, the Change in Bank Control Act, the Bank Secrecy Act, the International Banking Act, and the Bank Service Company Act. Among other areas, Jarryd advises on bank powers and permissible activities; affiliate transactions; structuring of new products and investments in banks; mergers, acquisitions, and strategic transactions; chartering, licensing, and expansionary proposals; capital and liquidity rules; anti-money laundering and sanctions compliance; responses to supervisory examinations; and enforcement actions.
