Program agenda

Ten years later: What did legislators and regulators learn?

A decade ago, Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy protection, and many observers feared that the global financial system faced imminent collapse. Ten years later, that system has recovered, following historic regulatory interventions and significant restructuring. Financial institutions, their counsel, and regulatory agencies now face new and different challenges, many of which flow from the financial crisis or the responses to it. The industry has been subjected to additional regulation since the crisis, but the pendulum is now starting to swing in the direction of de-regulation. How far will, or should, this trend go?

  • Moderator: Aaron Cutler, Washington, D.C. Partner, Hogan Lovells
  • Robert J. Jackson Jr., Commissioner, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
  • Michael Thompson, Managing Director and Head of U.S. Government Affairs, Goldman Sachs

Internationalization of class actions

U.S. class action lawyers have spent the past decade targeting major financial institutions in the U.S. After sometimes failing because of court decisions restricting the extraterritorial application of U.S. law or of personal jurisdiction, they have increasingly crossed the Atlantic, where legislation in certain European jurisdictions allows for class or collective actions. We will examine the trends and explore what's on the horizon as it relates to class actions.

  • Moderator: Lisa Fried, New York Partner, Hogan Lovells
  • Fiona Fallon, Vice President, Legal, Barclays
  • Christopher Hutton, London Partner, Hogan Lovells
  • Carlijn van Rest, Amsterdam Counsel, Hogan Lovells

Transitioning from LIBOR

Regulators have virtually decreed the demise of LIBOR, by far the most widely accepted interest rate benchmark, leaving massive uncertainty about replacing it and mitigating the transition-related risks, including to "legacy" instruments. We will uncover how markets and industry groups in the U.S., Europe and elsewhere are grappling with these issues.

  • Moderator: Evan Koster, New York Partner, Hogan Lovells
  • Ann Battle, Assistant General Counsel, International Swaps and Derivatives Association
  • James Doyle, London Partner, Hogan Lovells
  • Deborah Staudinger, New York Partner, Hogan Lovells
  • Tess Virmani, SVP & Assistant General Counsel, Loan Syndications Trading Association
