Michael will chair the panel on advanced issues in tax law for securities lawyers. His session will focus on how refunding, reissuance, and other tax issues affect how transactions need to be structured. The panel will also discuss the range of tax law disclosures needed in offering documents.
Tyler will chair the panel on life after LIBOR. It will analyze tax, securities, and general legal issues as the interest rate that has served as a global benchmark for nearly half a century phases out. His session will discuss potential replacements and what the change means for interest rate swaps and bond documents.
