PLI goes to São Paulo, Brazil. Latin American X-Border Transactions Seminar.

July 26, 2013

pli_350_250Our friends at the Practising Law Institute, the leading nonprofit continuing legal education provider, have historically offered seminars in the United States since 1933, primarily in New York City, San Francisco, Chicago and Washington, D.C. In 2001, PLI added the Institute on Securities Regulation in Europe, held in London, UK; and just this year moved into Asia, holding the First Annual Institute on Corporate & Securities Law in Hong Kong.

They are pleased to announce their expansion into Latin America with Practising Law Institute’s First Annual Institute on Current Developments in Latin American Cross-Border Securities Transactions 2013. This highly anticipated Institute will feature leading practitioners active in U.S. and Latin American corporate and securities law, as well as government regulators, prominent investment bank professionals and in-house counsel.

Hear from top industry professionals and receive the very latest updates on recent developments in cross-border transactions in Latin America, with a focus on Brazil.  This year appears to be headed towards being another interesting year in Latin American capital markets with indications of an increase in dual-listed equity offerings and innovative debt transactions. Stay current on ‘33 and ‘34 Act disclosure compliance for SEC registrants and home country disclosure requirements for Brazilian issuers. Topics will include a wide spectrum of matters affecting issuers in the U.S. and home country markets. Learn about regulatory developments in easing market access for prospective issuers. Hear from experienced regulatory practitioners who will focus on hot issues, best practices and practical pointers in international offerings. The PLI faculty will review key areas of regulatory focus, including FCPA, OFAC and other money laundering regulations, and insider trading. Important topics on corporate governance will also be discussed. And a separate panel will focus on developments in project finance as Brazilian infrastructure receives increased attention as the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Rio Olympics approach.
