SF Bank Attorneys Association Invites Jonathan Joseph to Speak about Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – July 21, 2010. The San Francisco Bank Attorneys Association (SFBAA) has invited Jonathan Joseph to be its keynote speaker regarding the newly enacted Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform Act at its monthly luncheon to be held at the Merchants Exchange in San Francisco on August 2, 2010.   Mr. Joseph’s speech to SFBAA’s membership entitled “Dodd-Frank Act – Selected Provisions Impacting the Financial Services Industry” will focus on how and why the final financial reform legislation took shape and its implications for banking organizations.

Mr. Joseph, who has over three decades of legal experience in the financial services industry, observed that “The genesis of this far reaching Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act began in 1999 shortly after repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933, which had mandated a clear demarcation between commercial banking and investment banking for more than six decades. Significant new measures in the Dodd-Frank Act will change the shape of Wall Street and the financial services industry for years to come by filling legal and regulatory gaps and reregulating what had largely been an unfettered environment in which the major financial related companies had become too intertwined to fail.”

Today, its membership includes in-house attorneys from major California banks, outside lawyers in law firms that practice banking law, venture capital attorneys, lobbyists and federal banking and California Department of Financial Institution regulators.
