Analysis of the 2008 Election Season, Legal Fallout from the Financial Rescue and Antitrust Law for Your Business
October 16, 2008
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
With less than three weeks to go until Election Day, we start with a review of last night's Vice Presidential debate and review the hot Senate and House races nationwide with our guest Vincent Frillici, former National Finance Director for Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT). Then, DeMaurice Smith, a former legal counsel to Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder in the Clinton Administration, is our guest as we continue our ongoing review of the seismic changes to the legal landscape due to the federal government's rescue of the financial sector. Then, with the corporate world in a state of transformation, seasoned litigator Andrew Friedman talks about how your business can comply with the complex world of antitrust law. Finally, we wrap up with emails, calls and commentary on the 2008 election season and the policy changes coming when a new Congress and White House begin work in January.
