This program is Part Two of West Legalworks' Special Three-Part Subprime Series.

Given the barrage of subprime-backed securities lawsuits that were filed in recent months and the mounting crisis in other debt markets, now more than ever lawyers need to know how to properly advise and defend their clients as well as achieve cost-efficient settlements. Some of the biggest challenges in the current credit crisis include insurance coverage, malpractice claims and complex bankruptcy issues.

In this two-and-a-half-hour webcast, West Legalworks has organized a faculty of leading subprime and debt securitization experts who have been in the trenches advising their clients on all the thorny issues arising from the credit crunch. Highlights of the webcast include:

• Subprime malpractice:
-  Potential claims against attorneys, accountants, auditors, financial advisors, and third-parties involved in securitization transactions
- Potential defenses
- Update on progress of current suits
- Grounds for liability of attorneys, accountants, auditors, and other third parties involved in securitization transactions

• Insurance coverage issues arising from subprime and other lending:
- Can insurance provide a source of recovery for potential plaintiffs?
- Will insurance companies cover the losses arising from the subprime debacle?
- Importance of notice
- Do informal requests from the SEC constitute a “claim” thereby triggering coverage?
- Which insurance provides coverage:  D&O; E&O; FI Bond
- Invoking coverage as a defendant

• The latest bankruptcy developments:
- Corporate bankruptcies and issues facing loan originators
- Lender filings and strategies
- Commercial borrowers in bankruptcy
