The enactment of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (“Dodd-Frank Act,” or “Dodd-Frank”) in 2010 was a watershed moment in the history of U.S. financial services regulation. As we move through 2013 with many key regulatory actions still hanging in the balance, it has become apparent that Dodd-Frank has catalyzed fundamental changes in the financial regulatory environment, and that banking organizations and other regulated firms will need to understand and respond to these changes in order to manage the new environment.

Our goal in asking this question is to propose a conceptual framework for operating in the new financial regulatory environment, along with a series of concrete suggestions that will assist financial firms in planning for and responding constructively to the new environment.
