Part Three of West Legalworks' Special Three-Part Subprime Series

In response to the subprime credit crisis plaguing our country, federal and state regulators have been rapidly drafting legislation to regulate the industry while enforcement agencies continue to conduct formal and informal investigations. Additionally, cities suffering from mass foreclosures, most notably Cleveland, Baltimore, and Buffalo, are taking action and suing lenders claiming, for example, that certain subprime lending practices created a public nuisance that hurt property values and city tax collections

In this two-and-a-half-hour webcast, West Legalworks has put together a panel of experts, including representatives from the SEC and the City of Cleveland, to help you navigate your way through existing and pending Federal and State legislation. Our faculty will also provide you with best practices for responding against enforcement actions.  Topics to be covered include:

• New regulatory initiatives affecting the mortgage market
• New and emerging targets of federal and state enforcement actions
• Civil actions brought by governmental agencies and entities (e.g., City of Cleveland)
• Federal and state legislative update
• How the Federal Reserve's pro-active steps to relieve the credit crunch will affect lenders
• Status of the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief bill
• Outlook for federal anti-predatory lending legislation
• Tips and strategies for SEC and FINRA investigations
