Amici Briefs

The Financial Markets Laywers Group and Foreign Exchange Committee voice views in litigation that could have a significant impact on the legal framework for foreign exchange markets in the United States. They have submitted amici curiae ("friend of the court") briefs on seminal cases that have affirmed the over-the-counter nature of financial market transactions, the arm's length nature of dealings in the over-the-counter financial markets and the importance of preserving the benefits of netting under U.S. insolvency laws.
