The next meeting of the Private Investment Funds Subcommittee of the Business Law Section's Securities Regulation Committee will discuss the impact of MIFID II on US managers. Joe Morrissey, a partner at Seward & Kissel and Dale Gabbert, a partner at the London office of from Simmons & Simmons will join us to provide guidance on these complicated rules which will become effective on January 3rd, 2018. Despite MIFID’s imminent implementation, many managers remain unclear on the impact of the new EU regime over their operations and over how to best prepare. Joe and Dale are both experts in this area and will give us valuable insights. Dale will be travelling from London to inform us of the latest developments. We look forward to seeing you all there.
