Guy Dempsey

Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP

New York, NY, USA

Guy C. Dempsey Jr. concentrates his practice on derivatives and structured products and on bank regulation. He advises clients on derivatives transactions of all types across all asset classes, as well as on the corporate governance, regulatory, collateral, compliance, insolvency and litigation issues associated with such products.

Much of Guy’s work currently involves helping bank and non-bank clients analyze the details and impact of the Dodd-Frank Act, including, in particular, the Volcker Rule and the swap regulations the CFTC and SEC enacted pursuant to that legislation. He has assisted numerous swap dealers in developing policies and procedures to comply with the new regulatory regime for cleared and non-cleared swaps.

Guy speaks regularly on derivatives topics, and has been active in the documentation of projects of the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc. (ISDA) since its formation.

Prior to joining Katten, Guy was co-head of the Derivatives practice at Latham & Watkins LLP.  Before that he was a managing director at Barclays Capital, where he held a number of senior positions, including general counsel for the Americas. He began his career at White & Case LLP and also served as managing director and counsel at Bankers Trust Company, practicing law in both New York and London.
