Katten is pleased to inform Corporate and Financial Weekly Digest subscribers that the firm has launched an additional financial services resource called Bridging the Week, a weekly blog authored by special counsel Gary DeWaal—both in written and video formats—that recaps and discusses top international financial and regulatory news in a concise, interesting and non-technical way. The blog is updated every Monday morning and is supplemented by periodic “Between Bridges” breaking news recaps. Articles are chosen based on Gary’s assessment of their relevance to businesspersons as well as legal and compliance personnel in financial services.

Bridging the Week aims to complement Katten’s Corporate and Financial Weekly Digest by identifying the potential impact of key global issues in the financial services arena. The blog also provides brief summaries of regulatory rulings and litigation developments, often supplemented by Gary’s insightful commentary as a financial services industry veteran with more than 30 years of experience on legal and regulatory matters.  

Before joining Katten, Gary was a senior managing director and group general counsel for Newedge—a subsidiary of Société Générale—where he oversaw the worldwide Legal, Compliance, Financial Crimes Prevention (including AML) and Regulatory Developments departments. He has also worked for the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s Division of Enforcement in New York.
