The ARS debacle, CDO transactions, Ponzi schemes, frozen credit markets, and a myriad of other financial calamities have already produced a surge of shareholder class actions, derivative suits, ERISA claims, insurance coverage disputes and other big-ticket litigation.

  • What litigation has been filed to date and what else is expected?
  • What additional risks and liabilities should the financial services sector protect themselves against?
  • How does the economic crisis affect a company's evaluations of the risks posed by litigation?
  • What new legal, regulatory and compliance risks confront businesses during this financial crisis?

Join litigation partners Mark Hanchet and Jay Tharp for this 30-minute teleconference in our continuing series.
