Goodwin Procter Launches Microsite to Help Professionals Monitor and Analyze Implementation of Dodd-Frank Act

BOSTON, Nov. 18, 2010 – Goodwin Procter LLP, a national Am Law 50 law firm, today unveiled a new website that provides comprehensive resources for monitoring and analyzing implementation of the Dodd-Frank Act’s numerous statutory mandates and rulemaking initiatives.  This new law requires regulatory bodies to engage in more than 240 rulemaking initiatives and conduct almost 70 studies on a broad range of issues.  The free online resource will assist financial services and legal professionals faced with the challenge of responding to the sweeping changes resulting from the Dodd-Frank Act and related financial regulatory reform efforts.

The microsite offers both extensive content on emerging financial regulatory reforms and a variety of tools to help users find relevant information rapidly and easily.  Users of Goodwin Procter’s Dodd-Frank and Financial Regulatory Reform website can search by keywords; by more than 130 topics including “Basel III,” “derivatives” and “too big to fail”; and by industries including private equity, swap dealer, mortgage servicing, bank holding company and venture capital; to address specific research needs.  Goodwin Procter experts will continuously update site content, as regulations are implemented.

Regulatory areas analyzed on the site include:

  • The Volcker Rule
  • Private Fund Adviser Registration
  • The new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
  • Risk Retention
  • OTC Derivatives Regulation

“Our new site is a wide-ranging resource with original analysis and links to primary source material to help clients and others stay on top of a rapidly changing regulatory landscape,” said Robert Kurucza, chair of Goodwin Procter’s Financial Services Group.  “It’s yet another demonstration of Goodwin Procter’s ability to address complex financial services issues in an integrated, comprehensive manner.”

The website will continue to tap the collective expertise of Goodwin Procter attorneys from the firm’s Banking, Consumer Financial Services, Hedge Funds, Private Investment Funds, Investment Management, Private Equity, Real Estate Capital Markets, Securities & Corporate Finance, Securitization & Derivatives, and Securities Litigation & SEC Enforcement Practices.
