In Fall 2009, Gabe Rosenberg was a first-year associate at Davis Polk and Wardwell LLP. Equipped with a master’s degree in applied mathematics and a newly-minted law degree, Rosenberg joined the Financial Institutions Group at a time when the firm and its clients were working hard to make sense of a rapidly changing regulatory environment following the 2008 financial crisis. It was this evolving regulatory complexity the firm and its clients faced that presented an opportunity for Gabe and one of the senior partners with which he worked, Meg Tahyar, to exercise lawyer-leadership.
