  • More Regulatory Hoops: The U.K.’s Proposal to Ring-Fence Banks
    Blogmosaic, Karen Lyons, 10/13/2014

    Last Monday, the Bank of England’s Prudential Regulation Authority published four proposals aimed at protecting customers if a deposit-taking bank or an insurer collapses. The Prudential Regulation Authority (“PRA”) is responsible for the prudential regulation and supervision of U.K. banks, building societies, credit unions, insurers and major investment firms. The PRA’s proposals implement the U.K.’s […]

  • The World Meteorological Organization Would Like Just a Moment of Your Time
    The Green Mien, Peter Lohnes, 9/9/2014

    You don’t have to read the whole report which isn’t long, but is full of “facts” and “numbers” and “science” and things of that sort. Just look over the WMO’s press release about its latest greenhouse gas bulletin – the chill you feel may compensate for the heat we’re generating. The report has thorny sentences like this: […]

  • This Week In Securities Litigation (Week ending October 17, 2014)
    SEC Actions Blog, Tom Gorman, 10/17/2014

    The Commission prevailed in three litigated decisions. The agency secured a favorable jury verdict in an action centered on an offering fraud. In two other cases - one based on misrepresentations regarding the only company product and a second alleging an investment fund fraud - the SEC prevailed on summary judgment motions. The SEC also brought its first action centered on high-speed trading, alleging that a firm marked the close repeatedly...

  • Cost of Compliance with SEC Conflict Minerals Rule High -- Even If Not As High As Feared
    Race to the Bottom, Celia Taylor, 10/17/2014

    According to a survey recently issued by Tulane University's Payson Center for International Development, issuers spent more than $700 million to comply with Dodd-Frank Section 1502 and the SEC's conflict minerals rule promulgated thereunder. The survey was based on responses from 112 of the 1,300 issuers that filed Form SD (the form on which conflict minerals disclosures must be made).

  • Debevoise & Plimpton discusses SEC's Proposed Rule on Security-Based Swap Quotes
    CLS Blue Sky Blog, Byungkwon Lim, 10/17/2014

    On September 8, 2014, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") published a proposed rule (the "Proposed Rule") providing that certain communications involving quotes of security-based swaps will not be deemed to constitute offers of such security-based swaps or of any guarantees of such security-based swaps that are securities for purposes of the registration requirements applicable to offers or sales of securities under section 5 of...

    Law Firm Memos
    Whether you’re looking for a nuanced legal interpretation of an obscure topic or just a primer on an issue you need to grasp quickly, our remarkable Law Firm Memos database has what you need. This “virtual law firm” is updated daily and features over 100,000 memos, articles, and alerts from attorneys in North America’s top law firms.
    Long one of Knowledge Mosaic’s most popular features, the Law Firm Memos database features expert legal commentary on 46 searchable topics, including such diverse areas as Antitrust & Competition, Energy, Intellectual Property, Labor & Employment, Public Health & Health Care, and Transportation law. You can even set up a customized email alert by topic, authoring firm, or text string.
    Laws, Rules, and Agency Materials
    Discover why we toyed with naming this search page "The Kitchen Sink." Laws, Rules, and Agency Materials offers nothing less than federated searching across the entire federal legislative and regulatory landscape.
    Here’s what that means. From a single starting point, you can troll across a broad swath of federal agencies -- including major financial, antitrust, energy, environmental, communications, and labor regulators -- plus major congressional oversight bodies, Congress itself, the Federal Register, even the statutory and regulatory codes that define the laws and rules of our country. All that coverage, integrated, faceted, unified, and simple.
    Our ambitious goal is to display the abundance of materials and information that spills beyond traditional agency boundaries on any important topic. We want to bridge the Beltway and sweep away the search silos that currently constrain research and limit the transparency of government information.
    GAO Reports
    Everything under the sun — or at least every subject under the purview of public policymakers — has at some point been studied by the Government Accountability Office, the federal think tank commonly known as the "Congressional watchdog."
    On Knowledge Mosaic’s Laws, Rules, and Agency Materials page, there are over 40,000 GAO reports, on topics as diverse as cybersecurity, nuclear waste disposal, the Troubled Asset Relief Program, anabolic steroid use among athletes, the U.S. embargo on Cuba, alternative fuels, campaign finance reform, and the regulation of hedge funds. This vast archive of information is easily accessible and instantly searchable. As a single source for in-depth, professional research and analysis covering a broad spectrum of subject matter, our GAO reports database is unrivaled — except, perhaps, by our comparably broad and deep database of Law Firm Memos.
