Top attorneys in Washington who focus on regulatory law and policy will share their insights on Nov. 13 about what to expect from federal agencies in 2014, the U.S. Supreme Court and Congress. The National Law Journal 2013 Regulatory Summit will feature a keynote address by Robert Khuzami, who joined Kirkland & Ellis this year after four years as enforcement director for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
The NLJ and Legal Times will host panels that feature regulators, legislators, law firm leaders and lobbyists. Panel discussions will examine the Environmental Protection Agency during President Barack Obama’s second term and Dodd-Frank Act provisions that have broad — and sometimes unintended — consequences.
Managing partners at McKenna Long & Aldridge, Dechert, Dentons and Morgan, Lewis & Bockius will share what regulatory nightmares keep clients up at night. Mayer Brown partner Andrew Pincus and Rachel Brand, chief counsel for regulatory litigation for the Chamber of Commerce’s National Chamber Litigation Center, will assess the high court’s regulatory docket.
Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), and former U.S. sens. Norm Coleman (R-Minn.) and Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.), will discuss policy fights on tap during the coming election year — including patent litigation reform, energy and environmental issues, financial services and immigration. The summit runs 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Grand Hyatt Washington, 1000 H St. N.W. Admission is free. Click here for more information. — Todd Ruger
