On Oct. 25, 2019, the College of Law will co-host the Ohio Securities Conference with the Ohio Division of Securities in Columbus, Ohio. The annual conference attracts hundreds of attorneys and other securities industry participants to discuss issues relating to the regulation of business investments within the state and nationally.

The 2019 conference will feature panel discussions on private securities markets, complex financial crime, compliance, and securities litigation. The conference represents a long-standing relationship with the Ohio Division of Securities and the College of Law that began with the work of Professor Emeritus Howard Friedman decades ago.

The Ohio Division of Securities administers and enforces the Ohio Securities Act, a body of law that regulates business investments in Ohio. Ohio is considered a model state in its licensing, registration, and enforcement practices.

Professor Eric Chaffee currently serves as a co-planner for the event. He noted, "Ohio has an outstanding group of state securities regulators." He continued, "It's an honor on an annual basis to help plan and host one of the premier state securities regulation conferences in the nation with members of the Division. It's also a great way to keep current on what is occurring in the securities industry."

Chaffee and Thomas Geyer, member of the Bailey Cavalieri law firm, will also lead a session on recent federal securities litigation.
