International Securities Regulations To Be Reviewed

Tuesday, October 4, 2011 - 01:00

The District of Columbia Bar will review the latest developments in International Securities Regulation, How We Got Here, Where We're Going, in a luncheon program on Tuesday, November 15. It begins at 12:30 p.m. and ends at 1:30 p.m. at the DC Bar Conference Center located at 1101 K. Street, NW in Washington, DC.

The seminar features Edward F. Greene, a partner at the international law firm Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP. Mr. Greene was formerly general counsel of the SEC and director of its Division of Corporation Finance, as well as general counsel of Citigroup's Institutional Clients Group, overseeing all legal aspects related to the group's activities with issuers and investors worldwide. Mr. Greene will discuss current issues and challenges in the area of international securities regulation in light of the Dodd-Frank Act and similar legislative and regulatory initiatives in other jurisdictions. Companies with cross-border operations and multiple regulators need to navigate increasingly complex and divergent requirements and expectations of regulators in the aftermath of the financial crisis. Mr Greene will be joined by Samuel Wolff, partner at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, and together they will offer insights on how the regulatory scheme has gotten to its current state and where it should be going in the near future.
