Debra Lewis Discusses Regulatory Relief for Banks with the Birmingham Business Journal
Debra Lewis, partner in the firm’s Birmingham office and member of the Banking & Financial Services Practice, spoke with the Birmingham Business Journal on March 22, 2018, about the suspected impact of a regulatory relief bill on Alabama banks. Debra discussed how many of the regulations set in place by the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010 were not efficiently allocated between the eight largest banks and the many midsized, community and regional banks. She also shared how this new bill will lift some of the regulatory burdens both banks and credit unions face and will serve as another step in creating a fair and effective regulatory scheme that promotes economic growth.
Debra advises financial institutions on a wide array of regulatory, compliance, and transactional matters at the state, federal, and industry level. She is recognized for her dedicated awareness of emerging trends that impact the financial services industry.
