The Legacy of the Madoff Ponzi Scheme: A Decade Later

Central Central
Chicago and Milwaukee Offices

Program Overview:

A decade after the revelation of the world's most devastating Ponzi scheme, Quarles & Brady thought leaders take a deep analytical dive into the impact, and describe in practical terms what it all means to you. The program will closely examine the types of claims and forms of legal exposure that liability secondary actors in the chain of the fraud (such as lenders) may face arising out of any financial fraud. Speakers will flag key lessons that emerged from Madoff, as well as offer practical insights on bankruptcies and receiverships arising out of financial frauds, the overall regulatory landscape for financial services participants, and how to identify fraud and operational risks in order to eliminate or greatly reduce exposure to claims. This important program is not to be missed whether you are in house lawyer, compliance professional, broker-dealer, lender, money manager, fiduciary or investor!

The Presenters (including one who interviewed Madoff behind bars) will discuss the scandal and its legacy in terms of risk to financial institutions, the future of the Ponzi scheme, and how to defend against claims brought by those impacted by financial fraud.
