All Good Things Come to an End: Preserving Value, Minimizing Liabilities and Taking Advantage of Opportunities During an Economic Downturn

Program Number: 2933 Presenter: Marc E. Hirschfield, Esq., Marc Skapof, Esq.

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** A decade after the “Great Recession,” numerous indicators—some new, some old—point to the reemergence of troubled times in the near future. Regulators and investors have little to no visibility into the pools of hundreds of trillions of dollars of derivatives and other esoteric securities pegged to the debt markets; outstanding U.S. corporate debt exceeds $7.5 trillion; interest rates are on the rise; geopolitical uncertainty over trade policy and BREXIT contributes to market volatility and a wall of high yield debt is set to mature in 2019/2020. Against this backdrop, it would be fool hardy to assume the good times will never end; instead, prudence dictates preparing for the storm before it reaches shore. This program is designed to equip in-house and outside counsel alike with the knowledge

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** When clients complain about their firm, their dissatisfaction often boils down to a lack of communication around costs.

A FISA Primer- Everything You Didn’t Know, You Didn’t Know

Program Number: 2878 Presenter: George W. Croner, Esq.

Electronic surveillance represents the most important foreign intelligence collection tool available to the U.S. government. Correspondingly, the ability to surveil constitutes one of those activities most susceptible to abuse by a government against its citizens. For years, electronic surveillance for foreign intelligence purposes was considered an exclusively Executive Branch authority, and every president from Franklin Roosevelt to Richard Nixon authorized its use. When serious abuses by U.S. intelligence agencies were revealed during congressional hearings held in the aftermath of Watergate, Congress reacted by passing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act which, for the first time, subjected foreign intelligence electronic surveillance conducted in the United States to a statutory regimen that included approval by a newly created Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. Today, there is more discussion, and controversy, about FISA than at virtually any other time in its history. This program is going to discuss the evolution of the use

The program’s presenter, a partner at the law firm of Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner, has been ranked by Lexology as the most read author on data privacy and security in the world, and is the author of the American Bar Association’s General Data Protection Regulation: Answers to the Most Frequently Asked Questions.

When Quasi-Municipalities Go Bad: How Does It End?

Program Number: 2867 Presenter: Karol K. Denniston, Esq., Travis A. McRoberts, Esq.

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** When municipal subsidiaries and affiliated entities “quasi-municipalities” are distressed, investors often awaken to unexpected litigation regarding whether the entity is a governmental unit or not. The answer to this question determines whether a court supervised restructuring can take place at all and whether it must be filed as a chapter 11 restructuring or as a chapter 9 municipal restructuring. When states do not permit governmental entities to file chapter 9, the default is often chapter 11 and the courts, over investor objections, have permitted chapter 11 restructurings to move forward. Assessing the risk that arises from uncertainty regarding whether and what bankruptcy proceedings can be used should be part of the investor’s underwriting process. In this webinar we will review the case law and talk about specific due diligence that should be
