Based on a successful series started by the Norton Rose Fulbright London office, the Norton Rose Fulbright New York office is launching a series of financial services 40-minute briefings November 2. Each month, Norton Rose Fulbright’s senior practitioners will provide interested in-house counsel and professionals with an insightful discussion on current regulatory trends within the financial services sector.

The briefings will stick strictly to a 40-minute format, over a provided lunch, and begin at 12:00 PM sharp.

In our first monthly briefing, we will tackle the latest on Brexit – cross-border compliance issues and timeline for change.

The UK’s historic referendum vote to leave the European Union will profoundly affect the city of London, as well as the financial services sector more broadly, impacting New York and the global economy in its wake.

Topics will include:

  • Spotlight on process: the journey into the unknown.
  • What practical steps have firms taken since the referendum vote?
  • The growing importance of ‘equivalence’ in EU legislation and focus on MiFIR.
  • Is deregulation in the cards for London as a result of Brexit?
