Annual FIA Law & Compliance Conference

The 38th Annual FIA Law & Compliance Conference on the Regulation of Futures, Derivatives and OTC Products (L&C 2016) will deliver tailored sessions from industry leaders on regulatory developments and their practical implications. WilmerHale is a sponsor of L&C 2016.

Partner Paul Architzel will be a speaker on the "Ethics" panel, which will help industry lawyers and others better evaluate the ethical impact of their day-to-day decisions, applying relevant professional requirements and guidance.

Partner Dan Berkovitz will be a speaker on the "Enforcement/Litigation" panel, which will provide an overview of the most recent enforcement actions and litigation in the industry, and will discuss current theories of law being followed by the CFTC's Division of Enforcement and the Exchanges.

Senior Counsel Brandon Becker will be a speaker on "The Great Debate" panel. Through a debate between two teams, this panel will explore the benefits and issues of maintaining broker-dealers and swap dealers in the same corporate entity as futures commission merchants.
