Derivatives and Risk Management

This seminar will consider one of the most talked about topics on Wall Street and in corporate board rooms: derivatives. We will go behind recent headlines on "rogue traders" and municipal and corporate (mis) management to consider the body of law emerging in pending litigation and legislation. The seminar will address issues arising in the use of derivatives for risk management and examine specific hedge strategies and the legal implications for the user, buyer, and seller. Distinguished Wall Street executives, corporate officers, law firm partners, and fund managers will participate in several classes.
