Program Materials

This CLE webinar will discuss the current LIBOR-related litigation landscape, theories of liability and defenses, other related litigation issues and trends, and the impact of regulatory investigations into alleged LIBOR manipulation.

Description

Since Barclays Bank settled with British regulatory agencies regarding the alleged LIBOR rate fixing, civil litigation has surged. LIBOR-related claims are expected to be massive and easily eclipse other suits arising from the financial crisis.

Despite the recent ruling largely dismissing investors’ class LIBOR rate-setting suit, litigation abounds. Charles Schwab responded by filing suit in state court—a move likely to be repeated by others. Potential plaintiffs, such as large banks, municipalities and high net worth individuals, are weighing options.

LIBOR manipulation investigations have so far netted regulators over $2 billion. Federal investigations are ongoing and 30 state attorneys general are investigating LIBOR-related rate rigging in a consolidated effort that could produce further penalties.

Listen as our authoritative panel of banking and financial services litigators discusses the complexities of the LIBOR-related litigation landscape and the impact of regulatory investigations into alleged LIBOR manipulation.
