Early pioneers using distributed ledger (DLT) and Blockchain technology have developed a wide range of applications which have survived pilot programs and continue to be used in commerce today. A single Blockchain can embody all transaction information in one digitally-shared, electronic document with transaction participants each getting appropriate credentials.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> This means is far more efficient, trustworthy and rapid relative to the Old School method which we as practitioners believe will go the way of wall-mounted rotary phones and Blockbuster Video stores. The question is not if this will happen, but when. As a more trustworthy process, the ledger is updated and viewable simultaneously by members of the network with safeguards against tampering. Whereas mortgage origination via DLT/Blockchain has already begun in leading markets, mortgage-backed securities (MBS) and A/B structured loans are also particularly well suited for DLT applications. Over time, the traditional escrow will be obsolete as well as other functions that we all see, use and accept today -- and this webinar will bring that into sharper focus.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Today&#39;s securitization process involves review by broker-dealers, issuers, investors, accountants, attorneys, rating agencies, and trustees. Similarly, loan participations involve multiple lenders and servicers. Blockchain technology has already been proven to be an accurate and trustworthy digital representation of the underlying loan, as well as copies of all origination documents, loan documents, and payment history ---all accessible in real time.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> We are seeing today eMortgages, eNotes and the beginnings of smart contracts such as interest rate swaps and caps accompanying electronic legal &ldquo;documentation.&rdquo; All of this enhances and benefits from the transformative qualities of Blockchain. In addition to automatic notification of any loan-related event, smart contracts can make automated payments to all loan participants based on the waterfall provisions outlined in the pooling and servicing agreements. We are especially mindful of the legal issues arising out of eMortages, eNotes as well as the custody arrangements of these new forms of legal arrangements. Drafters of the Uniform Commercial Code and policymakers supporting a range of statutes and implementing regulation have begun their work. This webinar will help participants spot issues and keep up with the evolving law.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The panel will discuss the architecture of DLT and potential applications of blockchain in the commercial lending context, with a particular focus on MBS and transactions with multiple participants or senior-subordinated structures. The panel will also discuss regulatory and data security concerns with implementing blockchain.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The panel will review these and other critical issues:</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <ul> <li> What is a distributed ledger, and how does it change the documentation of transactions and information?</li> <li> How can smart contract execution and enforcement be embedded in a distributed ledger or Blockchain?</li> <li> What are the custody issues concerning DLT applications such as virtual currency and how are these currencies custodied in a way that satisfies existing statutory law and regulation?</li> <li> How is an eMortgage and eNote custodied, what is the MERS Registry, and what are the legal issues which need to be addressed in new documentation?</li> <li> What are some of the current and proposed uses for Blockchain in mortgage-backed securities?</li> <li> What legal issues arise with Blockchain that are not present with more conventional formats?</li> </ul> <div> &nbsp;</div> https://www.seyfarth.com:443/events/ICSC-102419 Seyfarth at the 2019 ICSC U.S. Shopping Center Law Conference https://www.seyfarth.com:443/events/ICSC-102419 Thu, 24 Oct 2019 00:00:00 -0400 <div> Arren Goldman and Peter Oxman, partners in Seyfarth&#39;s Real Estate department, will be speaking at ICSC&rsquo;s 2019 U.S. Shopping Center Law Conference in San Diego, CA.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Arren will be leading a workshop on &ldquo;The Ins and Outs of Non-Recourse Mortgage Loan Guaranties&rdquo; on October 24.

Yet, all too often discovery is treated as a mechanical process devoid of strategic and tactical planning.&nbsp; A prompt and deliberate approach to discovery that supports what is necessary to win guides and narrows discovery up front, which will, in turn, lead to better results and value at lower expense.</p> <p> This course will delve into the components of these winning tactics and discuss how the rules of civil procedure, perceptions of proportionality in discovery, and technology - such as AI and Continuous Active Learning - have all aligned to allow &quot;new&quot; winning approaches to discovery.</p> <p> <em>If you have any questions or would like to register, please contact Katherine Hackett at <a href="mailto:khackett@seyfarth.com">khackett@seyfarth.com</a>.&nbsp;</em></p> <p> <em>*CLE Credit for this webinar has been awarded in the following states:&nbsp;</em>CA, TX, RI, VA, NY, NJ, NC, FL, IL, and GA<em>.&nbsp;</em></p> https://www.seyfarth.com:443/events/Strafford-092619 Steven Meier a Panelist for Strafford Webinar "Using Delaware Statutory Trusts in Real Estate Investments: Opportunities and Legal Risks" https://www.seyfarth.com:443/events/Strafford-092619 Thu, 26 Sep 2019 00:00:00 -0400 <div> Steven Meier, chair of Seyfarth&rsquo;s Corporate Department and co-chair of the firm&rsquo;s Tax Practice, will be serving as a pabelist for the Strafford webinar &quot;Using Delaware Statutory Trusts in Real Estate Investments: Opportunities and Legal Risks&quot; on September 26, 2019.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> <strong>Program Description</strong></div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> DSTs have become the investment vehicle of choice for syndicated IRC Section 1031 exchanges.

The policy change was designed to encourage proactive and concerted efforts in antitrust compliance.&nbsp; With this change, the Division may now consider, during the charging stage in a criminal antitrust investigation, a company&rsquo;s compliance program both at the time of offense and at the time of charging.&nbsp; This new policy also allows for a company typically not eligible for leniency under the Division&rsquo;s Corporate Leniency Policy (whereby leniency is granted only to the first company to make full disclosure of antitrust violations to the government) to now potentially be able to obtain a deferred prosecution agreement, provided that it has in place a strong compliance program.&nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> During the upcoming CLE we will examine this new policy with a focus on the following:</div> <ul> <li> what should all organizations take away from this new policy?<br /> &nbsp;</li> <li> what are the key elements of an effective antitrust compliance program?<br /> &nbsp;</li> <li> how do you know if your current compliance program is &ldquo;effective&rdquo;?<br /> &nbsp;</li> <li> how do you determine areas of antitrust exposure within your organization?</li> </ul> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> <strong><a href="http://marketing.seyfarth.com/reaction/RSGenPage.asp?RSID=Qn_Zpg9p_VwDNyYWUwmk3dI94BxaOTAE8rSzONR8yl8w55URnsU2vWZr-aH70sCm&amp;RS_REFERRSID=Qn_Zpg9p_VwDNyYWUwmk3dI94BxaOTAE8rSzONR8yl-sAEtZpBw0WTiwD-VXvY1c&amp;RS_REFERRSTYPE=NO&amp;RS_ORIGRSID=Qn_Zpg9p_VwDNyYWUwmk3dI94BxaOTAE8rSzONR8yl-sAEtZpBw0WTiwD-VXvY1c">REGISTER</a></strong></div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> If you have any questions, please contact Danielle Freeman at <a href="mailto:dfreeman@seyfarth.com?subject=Webinar%3A%20How%20to%20Reduce%20the%20Risk%20of%20Antitrust%20Claims">dfreeman@seyfarth.com</a> and reference this event.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> <em>*CLE Credit for this webinar has been awarded in the following states: CA, IL, NJ and NY.

Due to its vast oil wealth and relatively small population to which it must provide services, the UAE is well positioned to ride out the current low-oil-price economy. To diversify away from oil, the government is transitioning from an investment economy to a knowledge economy.

Accordingly, trade secrets often confer significant profit and competitive advantage to their owner. For this reason, companies are increasingly enforcing their legal rights related to unauthorized usage of their trade secrets under state and/or federal laws. At the same time, it is of strategic interest to consider how best to protect and commercially exploit trade secrets; in particular in the era of cybersecurity threats.</p> <p> This panel discussion will provide viewpoints and guidance from the perspective of outside legal counsel, internal legal counsel, and damages/valuation expertise as to best practices in protecting, enforcing, and exploiting trade secrets.</p> <p> For more information or to register for this in-person program, <a href="https://www.lesusacanada.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1259462&amp;group=">click here</a>.&nbsp;</p> https://www.seyfarth.com:443/events/CB082819-ATL We know the “WHY” … Let’s discuss the “HOW https://www.seyfarth.com:443/events/CB082819-ATL Wed, 28 Aug 2019 00:00:00 -0400 <p> Please join us for a panel discussion on the importance of developing female leaders and executives within corporate organizations.&nbsp; Our panelists will address practical and innovative strategies being employed across industry that are having the tangible impact of driving top and bottom line growth.</p> <p> <a href="http://marketing.seyfarth.com/reaction/RSGenPage.asp?RSID=WjSX6z1A9ZYVume8XYInOhhmJMNHUHtO6WivBGnrfPdLm3ee0nt88zlyIY9xwqa1&amp;RS_REFERRSID=WjSX6z1A9ZYVume8XYInOuUZT59tHtqckP0_ZXsJTLU7AGftQeRvxjyBt6rfor4C&amp;RS_REFERRSTYPE=NO&amp;RS_ORIGRSID=WjSX6z1A9ZYVume8XYInOuUZT59tHtqckP0_ZXsJTLU7AGftQeRvxjyBt6rfor4C">Register Here</a></p> <p> <strong>Speakers</strong></p> <p> <a href="https://www.seyfarth.com/dir_docs/publications/Amy-Dosik-Bio_GS-ATL.pdf"><strong>Amy Dosik</strong></a>,&nbsp;Girl Scouts of Atlanta, CEO<br /> <a href="https://www.seyfarth.com/dir_docs/publications/Laura-Maechtlen-Diversity-Bio.pdf"><strong>Laura Maechtlen</strong></a> (Moderator), Seyfarth Shaw LLP, National Chair - Labor and Employment<br /> <a href="http://"><strong>Mike Marino</strong>,</a>&nbsp;J.P.

Consumer rights include the right to know what personal information a business is collecting, selling, and disclosing about them; the right to deletion; the right to opt-out of the sale of personal information; and the right not to be discriminated against (written as a business duty). These rights are intended to provide consumers with a level of control of their personal information and to establish transparency on the part of the businesses to comply with consumers&rsquo; exercise of their privacy rights. In addition, businesses are required to provide employee training; website notice of consumer rights and categories of personal information collected, sold, and disclosed; and to implement and maintain adequate security measures.

On May 31, 2019, Connecticut lawmakers agreed to a state PFL law, which once signed by Governor Ned Lamont, will make Connecticut the 7th state with such a law.<br /> <br /> PFL also has recently spread to Massachusetts, Washington, and Washington, D.C. Certain deadlines under each law, including reporting, remitting, premium collection, notice, and/or posting, begin soon.&nbsp; This will be followed by major deadlines in 2020 and 2021 (depending on the law) when employees will begin using their PFL benefits.<br /> <br /> Another recent PFL development took place in New Jersey. In February 2019, the state amended its PFL law, known as the Family Leave Insurance (&ldquo;FLI&rdquo;) law, in several significant ways, including expanding the number of weeks an employee can receive FLI benefits.<br /> <br /> Please join Seyfarth Shaw&rsquo;s team for an informative webinar providing a detailed look at recent and upcoming PFL developments in Connecticut, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Washington and Washington, D.C. Topics to be covered include:</p> <ul> <li> Overview of state paid family leave laws and how they compare in terms of amount of benefits, amount of pay provided to employees, funding mechanism, covered reasons for use, and other topics.</li> <li> Massachusetts Paid Family and Medical Leave (&ldquo;PFML&rdquo;) discussion that will include updates on the new 3-month extension, payroll tax, process for remitting contributions to the PFML Trust Fund, employee notice requirements, and private plan exemption application process.&nbsp;</li> <li> Highlights of the newly enacted Connecticut Paid Family and Medical Leave Law.</li> <li> Expansion of New Jersey&rsquo;s paid family leave law, which began in February 2019 and continues throughout 2020.</li> <li> Update on the Washington State Paid Family and Medical Leave law, including the premium requirement, reporting and remitting deadline, and benefit start date in January 2020.</li> <li> Washington, D.C.

It extends the Statute of Limitations an additional 22 years so that victims of childhood sexual abuse can now initiate suit until age 55. It also allows a one year period for people older than 23 to file claims regardless of age, allowing claims that had previously been dismissed as untimely to be re-filed and re-litigated. Every school in New York is now vulnerable to decades-old lawsuits they may never have known existed. However, those lawsuits can only be commenced six months after the effective date of the legislation. Complaints can be filed commencing on August 14, 2019. This webinar will explain the Act, its ramifications, and what you need to be thinking about now to best protect your institution.&nbsp;</p> <p> <a href="http://marketing.seyfarth.com/reaction/RSGenPage.asp?RSID=qlS_jn_r0NzQoNsho82aF_Vasv4Y1hUK5DNH_I-Q2JPCdU4tUQuvM2na6_-a4d7FRNOpsKEftA0qwIoGKGdECA&amp;RS_REFERRSID=qlS_jn_r0NzQoNsho82aF_Vasv4Y1hUK5DNH_I-Q2JOcbWqxSN0fKcq4CRF3RJsXOz7owI9uqkIUuBcKfsMhpA&amp;RS_REFERRSTYPE=NO&amp;RS_ORIGRSID=qlS_jn_r0NzQoNsho82aF_Vasv4Y1hUK5DNH_I-Q2JOcbWqxSN0fKcq4CRF3RJsXOz7owI9uqkIUuBcKfsMhpA">Register Here</a></p> <div> <em>If you have any questions, please contact Danielle Freeman at <a href="mailto:dfreeman@seyfarth.com?subject=Seyfarth%20Webinar%3A%20The%20Significant%20Ramifications%20of%20New%20York%E2%80%99s%20Child%20Victim%20Act%3A%20What%20You%20Need%20to%20Know">dfreeman@seyfarth.com</a> and reference this event.</em></div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> *CLE Credit for this webinar has been awarded in the following states: CA, IL, NJ and NY.

The laws vary greatly from state to state and the sale of cannabis is still illegal under federal law. This comprehensive program on cannabis law will introduce the most relevant issues and practical solutions, including criminal, FDA, federal vs. state, investment issues, litigation, banking, money laundering, commercial, and licensing. It will also cover the changes and progress on the latest legal developments and future regulations for medical marijuana licenses and distribution. Registration includes online access to course and reference materials that serve as a helpful guide to the numerous topics and techniques discussed in the program.</p> https://www.seyfarth.com:443/events/IPASummit-050919 Steven Meier a Panelist for “A Discussion of Considerations for Managing Client Investment in QOZs” at IPASummit https://www.seyfarth.com:443/events/IPASummit-050919 Thu, 09 May 2019 00:00:00 -0400 <p> Steven Meier, chair of Seyfarth&rsquo;s Corporate Department and co-chair of the firm&rsquo;s Tax Practice, will be serving as a panelist for&nbsp;&ldquo;A Discussion of Considerations for Managing Client Investment in QOZs&rdquo; at IPASummit 2019 in Washington, D.C. on May 9, 2019.&nbsp;This two-part session will explore the rules and qualifications for structuring a QOZ fund and identify capital raising and deployment issues to consider.
