22 July 2010
Hosted By: the American Law Institute-American Bar Association (ALI-ABA)

NERA Vice President Dr. Sharon Brown-Hruska, a former Commissioner and Acting Chair of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), joined Ellen P. Pesch of Sidley Austin and David Kaufman of Morrison & Foerster for this ALI-ABA webinar on 22 July 2010. The program focused on the tougher regulations for over-the-counter derivatives included in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The faculty discussed various aspects of the new law, including the enhanced and shared regulatory authority of the SEC and the CFTC; broader enforcement powers to root out fraud and punish those who perpetrate it; requirements for central clearinghouses and exchange trading; new data collection and reporting requirements to enhance market transparency; new regulation for foreign exchange swaps; and new code of conduct for swap participants.
