The fallout from the collapse of the U.S. housing market is far from over. Institutional investors worldwide have suffered losses on purchases of toxic residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) and collateralized debt obligations (CDOs) that were, in many cases, sold by Wall Street investment banks based upon false and misleading disclosures. These alleged securities law violations have already resulted in a wave of investor litigation in state and federal courts throughout the country.
Our webcast program will dissect the RMBS litigation landscape, addressing the origination and securitization process, the litigation claims and defenses in these cases, the litigation scorecard thus far, and the potential exposure for the banks. The discussion will feature a panel of experts deeply versed in this area: Senior industry analyst Joshua Rosner, who has advised regulators and institutional investors on housing and mortgage finance issues; noted author and litigator Talcott Franklin, the author of the Mortgage and Asset Backed Securities Litigation Handbook, who has also established the RMBS Investor Clearing House; leading securities litigator Scott Musoff, partner at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP & Affiliates, who represents financial institutions in multiple subprime, RMBS and CDO related cases; and BLB&G partner and moderator Gerald Silk, who is representing numerous institutional investors in RMBS related actions.
Please join us for a discussion of the issues facing RMBS investors and their legal implications. This free webcast is scheduled for Wednesday, January 26, 2011 at 2 p.m. Eastern. To attend, please register below.
