Biography

With more than three decades of experience, Jamie Cain has guided insurers, banks, securities and commodities firms, and funds through significant transactions that transform their businesses including public and private securities offerings and mergers and acquisitions. He regularly works with U.S. and foreign companies to interpret and comply with the myriad of securities, commodities, insurance and banking laws that apply to these transactions.

A frequent speaker at industry conferences, Jamie is recognized for his knowledge of the Dodd-Frank Act and the regulation and use of derivatives including those instruments used for interest rate, foreign exchange, commodity, credit default and equity transactions and related collateral arrangements. He represents a wide range of global clients, typically on the buy side, including major public companies, financial institutions, public and private funds, government sponsored enterprises and foreign governments. He advises these clients on documentation of those transactions and on internal and regulatory compliance, investigations, enforcement actions and other disputes, including those arising from close out and valuation in the context of counterparty insolvency proceedings.
