Overview

The Steering Committee welcomes up to 48 senior attorneys from leading law firms and in-house counsel from ‘non-bank’ financial institutions who are at the forefront of enforcement and regulation. Participation is drawn from New York and Washington with a few heavy hitters from other states. During the sessions, high-level discussions are conducted between legal counsel and compliance officers at regulated entities outside the realm of the established incumbent financial institutions who are subject to investigation and enforcement, and the major law firms who advise them.

Using candid, seminar-style discussions at this annual meeting, the group shares the most pressing issues they face on behalf of their clients or companies. Participants examine trends and developments in every jurisdiction to learn how others address these problems and work together to identify solutions. The group also has the opportunity to have meaningful discussions with key players from select law enforcement and other regulatory bodies.
