(Atlanta) September 14, 2010 – Locke Lord Bissell & Liddell Partners Brian Casey of Atlanta and John Bruno of Washington, D.C., will discuss the ramifications of recent sweeping financial reform on the life settlement market and the banking industry from 2 to 3:30 p.m. (EDT) Thursday, Sept. 16, in an online webinar from DealFlow Media which hosts the webinar worldwide.
The life settlement and banking industries will soon have more government scrutiny than ever before following the passing of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and the release of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Life Settlement Task Force Report and the General Accountability Office Report to the Special Committee on Aging. Casey and Bruno will share their insight on the impact of these reforms. They are members of a panel that also includes attorney Steven Huttler of the law firm of Sadis & Goldberg.
