Dan Labovitz - croppedFinancial services consulting firm responds to increased spotlight on trade sector, hires former head of NYSE Regulation Office of General Counsel

Oyster Consulting announced today it has hired Daniel M. Labovitz to be the Managing Director of its New York office. The move continues Oyster’s ascent as a regulatory and compliance leader, heightening the firm’s ability to help broker-dealers and exchanges enhance controls and respond to increasing SEC and FINRA expectations regarding trading and conduct rules. The new office will be Oyster’s 14th U.S. location.

Labovitz is the former head of NYSE Regulation’s Office of General Counsel, where he was responsible for writing and interpreting the NYSE’s trading rules and supervising FINRA’s regulation of NYSE members. Labovitz most recently served as Principal of Crowley Labovitz Consulting LLC, where he was the independent regulatory auditor for a major exchange, and advised exchanges and broker-dealers in emerging and frontier markets on regulatory issues. He also served as a Senior Trial Counsel for the NYSE’s Enforcement Division.

“Dan brings legal and compliance audit, surveillance, and strategic planning skills in both the international and national exchange arenas,” explains George Jennison, Oyster Consulting President. “His experience as a trial attorney and General Counsel with the NYSE also provide him with a unique perspective when it comes to helping Oyster’s clients with their regulatory compliance needs.”

Dan will join Oyster Consulting’s industry experts as they continue to ensure that Oyster delivers high quality results and customized client services.

“Oyster understands the compliance and regulatory landscape that broker-dealers and exchanges must navigate today, and has deep experience helping clients find their way. I’m looking forward to leveraging my experience as part of that team,” Labovitz said.
