February 9, 2017

On February 9, Rodgin Cohen was quoted by the New York Times, which referred to him as “the dean of Wall Street lawyers,” in an article titled “Do You Need to Worry About Trump's Reforms? It Depends.” The article analyzed which potential Trump administration financial reform efforts would strengthen and which would harm the economy, including possible dismantling of core Dodd-Frank legislation. “It's essentially a law with good intentions,” Rodgin said. “It just needs adjustments and regulators who understand the need to balance safety alongside economic growth.”
