LITIGATION AND ENFORCEMENT ACTIONS SURROUNDING HEDGE FUNDS AND OTHER ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENTS

Regulatory agencies are increasingly becoming involved in the oversight of Hedge funds. Where there are creative ways to develop investment returns there will be ways in which regulators are suspicious of the activities and mindful of representing the rights of investors and maintaining a balance in the markets. This workshop will cover enforcement actions on hedge funds and other alternative investment vehicles, the subsequent litigation, and how to prepare for defense in both regulatory and civil suits regarding alternative investing strategies.

How you will benefit:

  • Examining case studies focused on products that have spawned hedge fund litigation
    and enforcement actions, including mortgage backed securities and PIPEs
  • Being prepared to manage civil and regulatory litigation surrounding alternative
    investments
  • Determining where risk lays
  • Maintaining compliance standards and preventing violations

What we will cover:

  • Developments in civil litigation with institutional investors: Litigating
    Fiduciary Duty claims, Redemption Demands and Other Investor
  • Federal (SEC, CFTC) and State enforcement actions involving
    valuation of assets, misuse of investor assets, undisclosed conflicts
    "Negligent misrepresentations" under the new antifraud rule
  • Specific cases involved in the subprime crisis
  • Areas of concern for compliance and future litigation

Everything begins with the right people.
