Intended and Unintended Consequences of Financial Regulatory Responses to the Financial Crisis: A Discussion with Peter Fisher of BlackRock & Professor Jeffrey Gordon of Columbia Law School (Moderated by Jesse Greene)

12:30-2:00 p.m. Columbia Law School-JG 105

This discussion will explore what has happened in capital markets following the crisis, particularly the impacts — both intentional and unintentional — of financial regulatory changes. In what ways have these regulatory changes affected access to capital markets and the way financial players do business? To what extent does uncertainty about future regulations affect counterparty behavior and risk-taking? What should be done about the unintended consequences of regulatory reform? To what extent do these reforms fail to go far enough in addressing risk factors that could produce a future crisis? These and other related topics will be the focus of this event.

What are its legal duties in intellectual IP? What can companies do to protect the foundation of their earning power? Is the concern valid and where is this going as China increases it innovation capability? These and other related issues will be explored in this discussion.
