Trump’s win expected to bring significant legal and regulatory changes

The election of Donald J. Trump to the presidency, along with Republican control of Congress, will have a significant impact on federal laws and regulations. A new White Paper authored by Wolters Kluwer editorial staff analyzes the potential impact of the Trump Administration on Tax, Health Care and Life Sciences, Banking and Financial Services, Federal Securities, Antitrust and Competition, Labor and Employment Law, Employee Benefits, Payroll, Pension and Retirement, Energy and Environmental Law, and Government Contracts.

Each section analyzes the potential changes Trump’s administration may implement based on his statements and proposals during his campaign and his cabinet nominee’s positions on issues; and the risks and impact on the practice of law, businesses, and individuals. Other practice areas, including Intellectual Property and Products Liability, are less likely to face immediate changes under the Trump Administration. 

With the new administration taking office in January, along with Republican control of Congress, the stage is set to bring about changes in securities regulation. In this White Paper, contributor Mark S. Nelson, J.D. discusses the impact of the election on the Dodd-Frank Act, federal securities regulation, and on related financial services industry issues.
