Course Materials

This CLE course will update counsel on recent trends involving mortgage-backed securities (MBS) suits and outline approaches to prepare for the complexities involved in representing the various stakeholders.


The credit crisis and multi-billion dollar write-down of MBS spawned hundreds of lawsuits by investors and financial guarantors against issuers, underwriters and originators. 

Federal and state court rulings continue to sharpen substantive and procedural issues in these cases, though many issues remain to be addressed.   Settlements continue to be announced and are expected to shape the course of ongoing litigation. 

Our panel will address the challenges that counsel face in pursuing and defending MBS claims. The webinar will focus on recent developments in put-back and fraud litigation, including class, regulator, enforcement and investor suits.

Listen as our panel of financial services attorneys analyzes and explains critical recent developments in MBS suits and rulings.

  2. Recent developments in fraud litigation
    1. Class action litigation
    2. Regulator litigation
    3. Investor litigation

The panel will review these and other key questions:

  • How might resolution of the unsettled issues impact outstanding litigation?
  • What are the most recent developments in settlement of MBS suits?
  • How has MBS litigation altered securities and contract litigation?
