As the head of R3’s leading global regulatory affairs strategy, she meets with regulators, central banks, and policy makers around the world.

Immediately prior to joining R3, she was an attorney at the law firms of Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft and Covington & Burling, where her practice focused on derivatives, counseling clients in a variety of regulatory, enforcement, and transactional matters. Prior to moving to a law firm, Isabelle worked at Delta Strategy Group, a Washington, D.C. based consulting firm focused on securities and derivatives, where she advised clients on a variety of regulatory matters with particular focus on the rapidly changing regulatory and market structure landscape created by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. In that role, she advocated on behalf of clients at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”), the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), and on Capitol Hill.
