As we pack our bags for Las Vegas (and it looks like our winter coats too), we are happy that several Mayer Brown partners will be featured speakers at SFIG Vegas 2019, being held February 24-27, 2019. See the more information at the conference website.

Leading off on Sunday, February 24, 2019,  Brad Keck will share his experiences as a practice leader and Hiring Partner, on a panel discussing The Law Firm of the Future: Successfully managing the Modern Practice.  Then on Monday, February 25, Carol Hitselberger, a leader not only at Mayer Brown but also in the securitization industry, will participate on a panel entitled, Beyond GSE CRT: Expanding the Use of Credit Risk Transfer; and Matt O’Meara, head of the firm’s Private Credit practice, will moderate the Private Credit Funds: 2019 Market Outlook panel. Credit Funds will be front and center at SFIG this year.

Finally, on Tuesday, February 26, Steve Kaplan, co-head of the firm’s Financial Services Regulatory & Enforcement practice, will participate on the All Rise: Judicial Proceedings and their Potential Impact on the Market panel; Stuart Litwin, co-head of the firm’s Structured Finance practice, will be a panelist on the Understanding New European Risk Retention Requirements; and Jon Van Gorp, co-head of the firm’s Capital Markets practice and a securitization thought leader, will moderate the Temporary to Permanent Financing of MSRs: Managing MSRs from Warehouse to Securitization Takeout panel.

Joining them at the conference will be at least another forty Mayer Brown attorneys from around the world. We all look forward to saying “hello” at the Aria Resort.
