Prosecutors have privately expressed concerns that New York's banking regulator Benjamin Lawsky could complicate the process of potential deals with BNP Paribas (BNPQY) and Credit Suisse (CS), reports the Wall Street Journal. According to several people familiar with the matter, Lawsky's cooperation is "crucial" if the state and federal prosecutors hope to agree to settlements with the banks that would require the banks to plead guilty to crimes. Lawsky could potentially strip the banks of their licenses to operate if they enter guilty pleas. Reference Link
