Stinson attorney Karen Garrett, a partner in the Banking and Financial Institutions Division, will be a featured panelist at American Conference Institute’s Forum on Regulatory Compliance and Risk Management for Financial Services taking place May 5-6 in New York City.

The conference aims to address major compliance and risk requirements to meet stepped up regulatory and reporting obligations. Garrett is a featured panelist at a pre-conference workshop, “Credit Cards and Debit Cards: Demystifying New Regulations and Reforms,” on May 4, as well as a panelist for a breakout session addressing the new wave of consolidation among financial institutions on Friday, May 6. Other scheduled speakers and panelists include federal and state government regulators and in-house professionals who will address current compliance and risk management matters associated with new regulations and landmark legislation.

In light of the ongoing financial reform, the financial industry’s compliance function is facing an influx of change, including the creation of new regulators, the regulation of new markets, the bringing of new firms into the regulatory arena, and the provision of new rulemaking and enforcement powers to regulators. This has resulted in a complete revamp of each affected company’s compliance program. Financial institutions need to be increasingly vigilant to ensure their compliance controls are in place and implemented in a way to conform to the regulations and landmark legislation.

Garrett has significant experience representing financial institutions and boards of directors in compliance and risk management matters relating to product development, operations, card products, payments systems and other services. She also has worked on behalf of financial institutions with state and federal regulators on many matters, from acquisitions and mergers to failed bank transactions to issues involving the limits of banking powers.
