Curtis and PWC to co-host High-Frequency Trading Seminar on July 30

Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle and PricewaterhouseCoopers are offering a free joint seminar, “High-Frequency Trading: Advanced Legal, Regulatory and Risk Management Strategies” on Wednesday July 30 from 8-10 a.m. at the Cornell Club of New York.

High-Frequency Trading (HFT), which now accounts for more than half of U.S. equity and futures trading, has become a prime focus of government regulators, investigators, and plaintiffs' lawyers. Legal and regulatory pressure is building, and the landscape is shifting.

Leading lawyers from Curtis and consultants from PWC will share their knowledge, experience and insights on such key HFT issues as:

What is the current state of regulatory reform, enforcement, and private litigation?
What changes are coming and how do they impact the current business models?
What are the control challenges in an electronic trading and HFT environment?
What should HFT firms think about when building risk and compliance frameworks?
What is the impact on technology and future role of IT organizations in maintaining competitive advantage?
What lessons can be drawn from abroad?
