Mike Silva focuses his practice on supervisory, regulatory and compliance matters in the financial services sector.

As the only Federal Reserve lawyer to have ever led an embedded on-site team of examiners for a systemically important financial institution (SIFI) and also serve in the private sector as SIFI c-suite executive, Mike has extensive experience, from both sides of the table, implementing the Dodd-Frank Act's enhanced prudential standards and meeting all dimensions of supervisory expectations, including those with respect to risk management, capital planning, governance, board effectiveness, compliance, internal audit, resolution planning and culture. Having served as chief of staff of the NY Fed during the financial crisis, Mike has also had extensive exposure to the policy making process, the mechanics of the financial system, and both official sector leaders and financial services leaders at the highest levels. Mike has advised institutions ranging from globally systemic important banks to start-up “fintech” companies.
