“The Business of Financing Business,” The Milken Institute Global Conference - Shaping the Future, Los Angeles, CA

Jenner & Block Partners Samuel L. Feder and Joseph P. Gromacki will speak at the Milken Institute Global Conference, “Shaping the Future,” taking place on May 1 to May 4 at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.  Mr. Feder will participate in a panel discussion titled “The Next Internet Revolution,” where the impact of broadband on the telecom, cable, consumer electronics and entertainment industries, as well as whether there is a need for Government regulation, will be discussed.  

Mr. Gromacki will moderate a panel discussion titled “The Business of Financing Business.”  That panel will address questions such as: are mid-market firms finding it easier to raise capital; have firms adopted a new approach to managing capital structure and debt loads; what lasting imprint will the financial crisis leave on the world of corporate finance; and, how has the investment banking industry changed as a result of the recession?
