The conference features several panels dedicated to regulatory and compliance issues. "The investment fund environment is always evolving and managers are becoming more and more sophisticated in their operations. Our clients look to us to provide them with the highest level of advice in the matters related to the formation and operation of their funds," said Steven J. Fredman, co-head of the firm's investment management group. In the U.S., U.K. and abroad, government oversight and regulation of the alternative investment industry have grown significantly with the implementation of key regulatory reforms and enforcement initiatives including the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, JOBS Act, Volcker Rule implementation, and various SEC and CFTC rules. "In recent years, we have seen a sharp uptick in government agencies enforcing financial regulations. During the seminar, we will discuss the best legal strategies for investment managers who are faced with increasingly complex regulatory and compliance issues," said Marc E. Elovitz, chair of the investment management regulatory & compliance group. Alan S. Waldenberg, chair of the firm's executive committee and chair of the tax group, added, "We are proud to represent some of the most influential investment management firms in the world and we are delighted to offer front-line knowledge to our clients who have travelled from across the globe to attend our conference."
