Biography

Jeff Robins is a partner in the Financial Services Group. He represents broker-dealers, securities exchanges, industry associations and buy-side institutions in regulatory and transactional matters. Recognized by The Legal 500 as remarkably strong in the regulatory field and a leader in equity derivatives, his regulatory practice is concentrated in the area of securities regulation of broker-dealers and the structuring of financing and derivatives transactions for multi-entity financial organizations subject to a variety of regulatory regimes; his transactional work focuses on prime-brokerage and over-the-counter derivatives.

Jeff has substantial experience providing counsel on margin, capital, custody and record keeping requirements, cross-border transactions, cash market sales and trading, and development of compliance and supervisory procedures. Jeff also advises a variety of financial institutions on credit aspects of financing and derivatives transactions, particularly risks to counterparties in the event of insolvency, the rights of creditors to close out financial contracts and exercise netting and collateral rights, and the risks and benefits of central clearing.

He received his J.D. from Harvard Law School, magna cum laude, an M.A. in Russian and East European Studies and a B.A., with distinction, in Political Science, from Stanford. Jeff was a clerk for the Honorable Cynthia Holcomb Hall of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
