Doug Lee


My Mindset

Our Team understands the complex forces that shape public policy and its impacts on markets, companies, and investors.

With significant experience in both the public and private sectors, Doug has a deep understanding of the financial services industry and policy issues impacting the firm’s business, non-profit, and investor clients.

Doug’s time at a leading global financial institution combined with his experience on Capitol Hill informs the valuable insights and analysis he provides clients on market-moving policy developments across the economy. He plays a leading role in Mindset’s respected tax, trade and appropriations practice, and contributes significantly to Mindset’s analytical and policy research work.

Doug most recently served as Vice President of U.S. Public Policy at Credit Suisse, where he advised the firm’s clients through his detailed written Washington Research product. He also developed and executed the bank’s advocacy strategy on issues ranging from prudential regulations to sustainable finance, while cultivating and maintaining strong relationships with key congressional stakeholders.

Prior to joining Credit Suisse, Doug served as an Associate Staff Member to the House Appropriations Committee, as well as Deputy Chief of Staff and Legislative Director to Congressman Mike Quigley (D-IL), Chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government. During his time with the Congressman, Doug was vital in the drafting and the successful passage of legislation to fund a wide array of federal departments and agencies including Treasury, IRS, SEC, and FTC. Doug began his career in Washington working for Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) as a legislative aide on economic policy. A New York native, Doug holds a Bachelor of Science in Finance from the University of Delaware.

Doug’s hidden talent: He has been known to run marathons without training. He wouldn’t recommend it.
