"The Oil Spill: What Will it Mean to Banks in the Region?"
August 31, 2010

Jones Walker will present a briefing on current issues that affect banks as a result of the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill on Tuesday, August 31, 2010, in New Orleans, Louisiana. We encourage bank executives, board members, and senior management to attend.

This briefing will cover specific research and projections on the effect that the Gulf of Mexico oil spill will have on the economy of the region and what it means to banks. David Dismukes, Director of the LSU Center for Energy Policy, has been working with the Louisiana governor’s office to project the state of the economy after the spill and the ramifications of the moratoriums.

Mr. Dismukes will be the keynote speaker and has convened a panel to discuss:

  1. Aspects of how the banks may need to treat loans
  2. Treatment of certain assets or loans on the balance sheet
  3. Estimated damages to property values
  4. What efforts are on-going in Washington to provide relief or guidance to banks on these issues
  5. How will federal bank regulators treat these issues

Jones Walker attorneys David M. Hunter, Katharine F. Musso, and Regina N. Hamilton will serve as panelists. The format is intended to be open and in a question and answer format. Lunch will be provided at the conclusion of the program.

Tuesday, August 31, 2010 | 9:30 a.m.–1:00 p.m.
Hotel InterContinental | 444 St. Charles Ave. | New Orleans, LA 70170
