Virtual
Speaking Engagement

Partner Michael Dawson will speak at this program focused on the recent litigation Pearson v. Deutsche Bank, which culminated in a $95 million jury verdict against Deutsche Bank. The program will look at the plaintiff's allegations and causes of action, Deutsche Bank's defenses, judicial decision of some of the causes of action, and the causes of action that went to the jury. The program will also ask the further question whether the case represents a trend toward private litigation of financial crime risk management standards, citing other matters involving JP Morgan Chase and Deutsche Bank.

We will apply for Colorado CLE (after the program) if requested.  The type and amount of credit awarded will be determined solely by the Colorado Supreme Court. WilmerHale is not an accredited provider of GA, IL, NC, TX, or VA CLE, but we are applying for CLE credit in these states. The type and amount of credit awarded will be determined by the State Bar of Georgia, Supreme Court of Illinois,  North Carolina State Bar, State Bar of Texas, and Virginia CLE Board.  New Jersey grants reciprocal credit for programs that are approved in New York. We can also issue Connecticut credit. All attendees, regardless of jurisdiction, will receive a uniform certificate of attendance that shows the states in which the program was approved. Attendees who need credit in another jurisdiction can use the uniform certificate of attendance to self-apply. CLE credit is not available for on-demand webinar recordings.
