Goodwin Procter Issues Client Alert on House Legislation Regulating Derivatives Trading

Goodwin Procter has issued a Client Alert analyzing separate bills approved by the House Financial Services Committee and the House Agriculture Committee, each of which would create a new regulatory regime for derivatives trading.  The Client Alert also compares these bills to the U.S. Treasury’s proposed OTC derivatives legislation issued in August 2009 (discussed in Goodwin Procter’s August 27, 2009 Client Alert).
