In the past two weeks the US financial system has seen events unfold which would have been unthinkable a year ago, join us for a recap of the major events and the key legal issues that have been raised.

In this 30-minute briefing, Mayer Brown partners from the US, UK and Asia will provide a "post game" analysis of the issues relating to:

  • the impact on the derivatives markets and other financial contracts;
  • the rights of parties to terminate or assign positions, recover collateral, and continue to conduct trades.

We will also summarise some of the strategies that you should be considering to protect your organisation's position as you plan for the next phase of this rapidly changing market.
