Why You Should Attend:

The abuse of credit default swaps and the tightening of the worldwide credit market have led to a global economic slowdown. Global losses due to the credit default swaps have been estimated to fall in the range of sixty trillion dollars. Government bailouts worldwide, such as RBS, Fortis, and Citigroup, are reshaping our understanding of quasi-governmental entities and reestablishing the parameters of regulation. The global financial crisis has expanded its reach into legal practice areas worldwide -- from litigation and securities to bankruptcy, structured finance and real estate. As the problems in the United States spread abroad, attorneys need to prepare to handle the widely recognized instability in the world financial markets. Our stellar faculty of in-house counsel, compliance officers, regulators, and private practitioners will share their insights and expertise so that you and your clients and companies can proactively handle any developments resulting from these global events.

What You Will Learn:

- The current global economic climate
- The effect of governments worldwide providing bailouts, including the TARP
- New developments involving distressed property and bankruptcy, including 363 sales
- What ongoing litigation means for the global recession
- New areas of global economic growth
