On July 26, 2010, a memo, entitled “The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act,” was issued to Cravath clients. The Dodd-Frank Act, which spans over 2,300 pages, provides for far-reaching changes to the U.S. financial regulatory system and also contains an array of other provisions that directly affect all U.S. public companies. This 14-page Cravath memo was written primarily for corporate executives and lawyers and, with this audience in mind, highlights the key provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act and provides a clear and concise summary of this landmark legislation.
For more information, contact Cravath partners John W. White, B. Robbins Kiessling, Richard W. Clary, William P. Rogers, Jr., Robert H. Baron, C. Allen Parker, Daniel Slifkin, William J. Whelan III, Andrew J. Pitts, Michael T. Reynolds, Timothy G. Cameron, LizabethAnn R. Eisen or Rachel G. Skaistis.
