White paper examines potential regulatory changes under the Trump administration

President-elect Trump’s administration will likely have a significant impact on federal laws and regulations. A white paper authored by Wolters Kluwer editorial staff, Trump’s Win Expected to Bring Significant Legal and Regulatory Changes, discusses potential changes to these areas, including: Tax, Health, Life Sciences, Labor and Employment, Federal Securities, Banking and Finance, Antitrust and Competition Law, Energy and Environmental Law, Government Contracts, Employee Benefits, Payroll, and Pension and Retirement.

Each section analyzes the potential changes the Trump administration may implement based on Trump's 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. In the Securities section, contributor Mark S. Nelson, J.D. discusses the impact of the election on the Dodd-Frank Act and federal regulation of the financial services industry.
