Understanding the Political, Legal and Business Consequences of the Financial Market Meltdown
September 25, 2008
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
The ongoing crisis in global financial markets is sparking changes in the world of politics, law and business. Nick Allard and Ben Ginsberg, Public Policy co-chairs at Patton Boggs LLP, discuss how the rapid deterioration of the financial world will impact the election. Micah Green, former President of the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA), and Todd Cranford, past Senior Counsel to the House Financial Services Committee, forecast Congressional actions in response to the crisis. Attorneys Tal Franklin and Tom Nealon, co-authors of the Mortgage and Asset-Backed Securities Litigation Handbook, discuss the market meltdown’s legal fallout. Stephanie Peters, former Counsel to the House Judiciary Committee, previews the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) legislative conference. With Barack Obama running for President and CBC members chairing several key Congressional committees, this conference is a glimpse of the political agenda for 2009.
