Willa Bruckner will speak during an audioconference titled "Credit Derivatives: Mastering Key Legal and Documentation Issues" on April 10, 1:00pm - 2:30pm EST. Over the past decade, credit derivatives have become a common instrument for shifting credit risk from one party to another without transferring the underlying credit. The credit derivatives market is estimated to have grown from $180 billion in 1996 to more than $20 trillion in 2006.
The current credit market crisis has brought heightened attention to the risks associated with credit derivatives. Regulators in the United States and overseas are worried that credit derivatives transactions may be poorly documented and risk management systems ineffective.
What are the best practices for counsel to advise clients in utilizing these transactions in order to minimize legal risks, particularly during the current credit market crisis?
Listen and participate from your telephone as our panel of corporate finance attorneys reviews the latest trends in the credit derivatives market, legal and documentation risks related to credit derivatives and strategies to minimize those risks.
