Trading in Opaque Markets: False Statements, Materiality and Securities Fraud

Program Number: 2736 Presenter: Thomas O. Gorman, Esq.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) have brought four cases charging six traders from two major firms with fraud. The actions are all similar, claiming that the traders made multiple misrepresentations when dealing with counter parties in either the residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) or commercial mortgage backed securities (CMBS) markets. The misrepresentations are detailed in electronic communications. Two criminal cases have, however, ended largely in acquittals. Yet the government continues. In this program, Tom Gorman critically examines these cases, distilling important lessons for trading houses and their compliance professionals while pointing to a likely area of future focus for the SEC inspection program.

Post-Grant Patent Office Proceedings After the AIA: Lessons from the First Five Years

Program Number: 2724IP Presenter: Brian A. Jones, Esq., Amol Parikh, Esq.

The creation of Inter Partes Review (IPR), Post Grant Review (PGR), and Covered Business Method Review (CBMR) has drastically impacted and shifted patent litigation strategy since 2012. These proceedings have proven to be a relatively cost-effective approach for a party seeking to challenge the validity of a patent. But these proceedings are not without their critics, and numerous issues have developed relating to the authority of the Patent Office concerning grant or denial of institution, the applicable claim construction and invalidity standards, and the effect of estoppel, just to name a few. This presentation focuses on the evolution of Post-Grant Patent Office proceedings, recent reforms, current trends, and potential changes that may occur in the near future.
