As we come to the end of a week in which 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 will provide a "post game" analysis of the issues relating to:
