Tim Aron, a partner of Katten Muchin Rosenman UK LLP, focuses his practice on the regulation of financial services firms, clearinghouses and trading platforms. He advises on a wide range of regulatory matters, including regulatory change issues—the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD), the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) and the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive 2 (MiFID 2)—securities and derivatives transactions, safe-keeping of money and assets, systems and controls and other high-level standards, conduct of business rules, and the restructuring, acquisition and disposal of entities in the financial sector.

In private practice, Tim's clients include fund managers, clearinghouses, trading platforms, banks, insurers, securities and commodity broker-dealers, a range of other investment firms. Tim has also acted for the administrators of a major broker-dealer currently in administration.

Immediately following the collapse of Lehman Brothers, Tim advised the UK regulator’s markets division, banking division and enforcement and financial crime with regard to a variety of post-financial crisis policy, supervisory and contentious-supervisory matters. Tim has also served as legal adviser to the UK Listing Authority, the UK regulator's legislation team, the UK Competition Commission and a major US investment bank.
