    Over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives are key elements in many of today's financial markets. Due to their complexity, however, they are difficult to understand and value. Because they may be used to gain leveraged exposure to specific risks—magnifying potential gains and losses—they can produce large losses for investors during periods of heightened market volatility. Many economic experts believe that derivatives such as credit default swaps were one of primary causes of the financial crisis.

    Ensuing losses can be accompanied by litigation by parties such as investors, financial institutions, and regulators that allege that the risks associated with the investment strategy and/or the profit potential were misrepresented or that the risks were not accurately explained to them.

    In this program, our expert panel will discuss:

    • Valuation in the context of derivatives litigation
    • Representative derivatives cases and types of allegations
    • Frequency and nature of litigation
