Sheppard Mullin's Nota Bene

Aug 14, 2019

In this recap episode, I’m extracting the valuable lessons shared by our guests in the prior 5 episodes. I offer my two cents about the practical advice shared by our guests to help the C-Suite understand the legal, political, and economic underpinnings impacting the 21st intercontinental business landscape in which they operate.

In Episodes 43 and 44, we conducted our quarterly check-ins with our Legislative and Congressional experts, Elizabeth Frazee and Jonathan Meyer, respectively. Elizabeth described the seemingly unprecedented temperament and environment in Washington DC.  She also updated us on ongoing trade deals between the U.S. and Mexico, cybersecurity, and the minibus appropriations discussions. Jon covered the Mueller testimony, the fiscal cliff, and whether or not the 2017 tax cuts have had any impact on the economy. 

In Episode 45, we explored some lessons learned from the college admissions scandals with Joseph Jay.  Joe described the steps a company can take if it finds itself in a crisis situation, including issuing holding statements.

In Episode 46, I discussed America’s existential antitrust crisis with Tom Dillickrath and dove into policy makers’ obsession with big tech companies. We debated whether the attention from Congress and the two antitrust enforcement agencies will matter?

In Episode 47, we talked all about capital with Colleen McDonald and she addressed the resurgence in securitization driven by San Francisco’s FinTech corridor and all of the exciting opportunities on the horizon for structured finance.
