Steptoe & Johnson LLP has launched Financial Services University, a video series that illustrates the financial services legal, business, and regulatory issues companies face around the world.
“We’re excited to launch our Financial Services University,” says Matt Kulkin, partner and co-chair of the firm’s Financial Services Group (FSG) and former Commodity Futures Trading Commission director. “These short videos show the depth and breadth of our global Financial Services Group, both in terms of subject matter expertise and geographic reach. The Financial Services University brings together lawyers from across practice areas, jurisdictions, and industry teams to help viewers stay informed about the latest financial services industry developments.”
Each video is self-contained, so viewers can choose a topic that is relevant to their sector. Topics in the library include anti-money laundering regulation, corporate governance, distressed asset acquisition, economic and trade sanctions, estate planning, EU cybersecurity legislation, government affairs, insider trading investigations and enforcement, taxes, trade policy, and virtual currency and blockchain.
Steptoe’s multidisciplinary FSG provides a comprehensive approach for addressing the interplay of legislative, regulatory, compliance, investigations, and enforcement challenges created by the implementation of the Dodd-Frank Act and other financial regulations. The Steptoe team includes former regulators, former senior legislative staff, financial industry thought leaders, and seasoned litigators with decades of experience working in and with the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government.
