**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** The California Consumer Privacy Protection Act of 2018 (“CPPA”) is arguably the most comprehensive - and complex - data privacy regulation in the United States. The CCPA was designed to emulate the European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) in many respects. The program will address how the CCPA is like, and how it differs from, the GDPR, and practical steps that companies should take to come into compliance with the regulation. The program’s presenter, a partner at the law firm of Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner, has been ranked by Lexology as the most read author on data privacy and security in the world, and is the author of the American Bar Association’s General Data Protection Regulation: Answers to the Most Frequently Asked Questions.

When Quasi-Municipalities Go Bad: How Does It End?

Program Number: 2867 Presenter: Karol K. Denniston, Esq., Travis A. McRoberts, Esq.

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** When municipal subsidiaries and affiliated entities “quasi-municipalities” are distressed, investors often awaken to unexpected litigation regarding whether the entity is a governmental unit or not.

When states do not permit governmental entities to file chapter 9, the default is often chapter 11 and the courts, over investor objections, have permitted chapter 11 restructurings to move forward. Assessing the risk that arises from uncertainty regarding whether and what bankruptcy proceedings can be used should be part of the investor’s underwriting process. In this webinar we will review the case law and talk about specific due diligence that should be

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** A decade after the “Great Recession,” numerous indicators—some new, some old—point to the reemergence of troubled times in the near future. Regulators and investors have little to no visibility into the pools of hundreds of trillions of dollars of derivatives and other esoteric securities pegged to the debt markets; outstanding U.S. corporate debt exceeds $7.5 trillion; interest rates are on the rise; geopolitical uncertainty over trade policy and BREXIT contributes to market volatility and a wall of high yield debt is set to mature in 2019/2020. Against this backdrop, it would be fool hardy to assume the good times will never end; instead, prudence dictates preparing for the storm before it reaches shore. This program is designed to equip in-house and outside counsel alike with the knowledge
