Dechert’s securitization team is looking forward to attending the ABS East 2013 (“ABS East”) conference, which kicks off on October 6, 2013 at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami, FL. The conference is expecting more than 3,600 participants so it will be an ideal opportunity to connect with clients and other key players in the securitization industry.

As is our custom, Dechert will be toasting the year’s successes with clients and friends on Sunday night at our much anticipated ABS East kickoff cocktail reception.

Panel discussions will begin Sunday afternoon and continue through Wednesday on securitization industry topics ranging from collateralized loan obligations to aircraft and rail car finance to a discussion focusing on residential and commercial solar market securitization transactions.

Monday morning will feature a keynote debate on the United States housing market recovery and its impact on the economy between Michael Stegman, Counselor to the Secretary of the Treasury for Housing Finance Policy, and Mark Zandi, Chief Economist for Moody’s Analytics.

On Monday afternoon, Dechert Partner Robert Ledig will participate in a panel discussion on the opportunities and challenges related to Dodd-Frank Qualified Mortgages, including assignee liability on non-Qualified Mortgage loans and the Qualified Residential Mortgage’s expected role in risk retention.

On Tuesday morning the keynote speaker will be Rohit Chopra, Assistant Director and Student Loans Ombudsman for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

In all thirteen Dechert attorneys will be in attendance, including Dechert partners Pat Dolan, Malcolm Dorris, Robert Ledig, Ralph Mazzeo, John Timperio and Cindy Williams. We are looking forward to seeing many of you there.
