Named for its congressional champions – Sen. Chris Dodd and Rep. Barney Frank – the Dodd-Frank law is a sprawling federal statute signed into law by President Obama in July 2010. The law seeks to “promote the financial stability of the United States by improving accountability and transparency in the financial system, to end ‘too big to fail,’ to protect the American taxpayer by ending bailouts, to protect consumers from abusive financial services practices, and for other purposes.”

The size and scope of the law virtually guarantee that in-house counsel faced with ensuring their respective companies’ new compliance requirements will experience Dodd-Frank differently depending on their industry. Is your legal team aware of enhanced disclosures? Do they understand the ramifications for non-financial companies? Do they understand the power held by the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection?

LexisNexis® will provide answers to these questions and more during a 90-minute complimentary webinar designed for both in-house and outside counsel.

On July 20, 2011, from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm ET, Linda Kaiser Conley, Esq., Cozen O’Connor, Thomas More Griffin, Esq., Gibbons P.C. and others will cover topics including:
