Mr. Cabral’s extensive knowledge of federal and state banking and financial services laws, including the Bank Holding Company Act, National Bank Act, Federal Deposit Insurance Act, International Banking Act and Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, and their implementing regulations, allows him to strategically advise clients on a broad range of policy, legislative, regulatory, transactional, corporate governance, enforcement and other matters.
