Saturday, November 1, 2008 - 00:00

Titled Hedge Fund Enforcement & Regulatory Developments 2008, this PLI-sponsored program will be held on Monday, November 24 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the PLI New York Center, 810 Seventh Avenue, New York City.

The program will be chaired by Barry R. Goldsmith, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP. He will be joined by a faculty of experts to include Barry P. Barbash, Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP; Thomas A. Biolsi, Associate Regional Director, Securities & Exchange Commission; Francois Cooke, principal, Financial Risk Management and Financial Services Regulatory Practice, KPMG; Dennis C. Hensley, Sidley Austin LLP; and Ronald E. Wood, Proskauer Rose LLP.They will examine current enforcement and compliance priorities.

The program will focus on what new areas the SEC and other regulators see on the horizon and what will be the likely regulatory response. For example, the newly proposed rule against naked short selling and amendments to Regulation SHO, the SEC's "pilot" hedge fund adviser exam letter and the new SEC examination priorities have sparked widespread debate among indusry participants. The SEC's mixed record of success in bringing enforcement actions in the PIPEs area and what this means for future cases will also be addressed.
