There is no question that the financial services industry is facing increased challenges as regulators and prosecutors worldwide pursue aggressive enforcement efforts, while financial institutions are enmeshed in high-profile civil litigation throughout the world. Banks are alleged to be engaged in antitrust violations; fines and penalties continue to set new records; courts are endorsing an expansive reading of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act by the US Securities and Exchange Commission; and the UK Serious Fraud Office has just secured its first deferred prosecution agreement in relation to a bank.

Please join us for a half-day, in-person conference where we will explore various issues that have affected the financial services industry in the past year, and address how financial services firms can best prepare for the future in this challenging environment. We will discuss key issues facing financial institutions, including developments in 2015 and trends for 2016 in these areas:

  • Regulatory investigations and follow-on litigation
  • Enforcement of the FCPA and Bribery Act
  • Hot topics in financial services litigation including:
    • Discovery and e-discovery
    • Structured products
    • Cross-border litigation
    • The impact of Daimler
    • Class actions

Application for New York CLE accreditation of this program is pending.
