Jaffe Attorneys Partner With ETA To Host Informational Webinar Series (Tuesday, January 11, 2011)

Members of the Jaffe Raitt Heuer & Weiss, P.C. electronic payments practice group will present a webinar, in conjunction with the Electronic Transactions Association (ETA), covering regulations proposed by the Federal Reserve Board. Jaffe CEO Richard Zussman made the announcement.

The first session of the two-part webinar series, entitled, “The Durbin Amendment Deconstructed,” will take place Friday, January 14, 2011 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Eastern time and will discuss proposed regulations implementing the Durbin Amendment, including the debit interchange fee, network exclusivity and merchant routing restrictions. Attendees will be better prepared to influence final regulations by submitting comments to the Federal Reserve Board before final regulations are released.

The second part of the webinar, “Federal Reserve Board Final Debit Regulations,” will take place after April 2011.

Jaffe Attorneys Holli Targan, Jill Miller and Sarah Weston will be joined by Mary Bennett, director of government and industry relations for the ETA, in leading the webinar.
