McKenna to Speak September 15 at New York County Lawyers Association

I have been asked to participate on September 15, 2010, 6-9 pm in New York City (14 Vesey Street, 2nd Floor Auditorium) on a panel to discuss, A Crisis of Our Own Design, with Floyd Norris, Chief Financial Correspondent, New York Times and Anton Valukas, Lehman Bankruptcy Examiner, Chairman, Jenner & Block.

The program is sponsored by the NYCLA Futures & Derivatives Committee and The George Washington University Law School Center for Law, Economics and Finance.

Prominent past and current regulators, bankers, attorneys, journalists and agency rating representatives will delve into the details surrounding the financial crisis, how and why the industry is changing and how ethical implications will impact the financial industry in the future.

For more information and to register, go here.  You do not have to be an attorney nor a member of the New York County Lawyers Association to attend.

Three panels of experts will focus on the causes and consequences of the financial crisis, including:

  • What We Need to Know About Enforcement, Regulation, Accounting and Risk Management in the “Post-Crisis” Era
  • A Crisis of Ethics? What the Crisis Can Teach Lawyers About Ethical Conduct in the Financial Markets
  • A Crisis of Our Own Design: What We Can Learn From the Build Up to and Culmination of the Crisis in September 2008
