ARRC Members Lead Webinars on Consultations for LIBOR Fallback Language

The Federal Reserve’s Alternative Reference Rates Committee (ARRC) released two new webinars explaining its consultations on U.S. dollar LIBOR fallback language for bilateral business loans and securitizations. The ARRC consultations propose draft language for new contracts that reference LIBOR in order to provide transition to an alternative reference rate.  The deadline for providing feedback on the consultations is February 5, 2019.

The webinars are part of a series that also includes consultations for the floating rate note and syndicated loans markets.  Cadwalader represented the ARRC in the development of all consultations.  Cadwalader’s LIBOR Preparedness Team is headed by partner Lary Stromfeld, and includes partners David Burkholder, David Gingold and Jeff Nagle.
