NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 26, 2011) - Recognizing that even seasoned banking and finance attorneys may still struggle to understand affiliate transaction restrictions (ATRs) for banks, Practical Law Company (PLC), a provider of online practical know-how for law firms and law departments, and Goodwin Procter LLP, a national Am Law 50 firm, will be hosting, "Affiliate Transactions for Banks: Your Guide to Requirements," a free webinar to help attorneys quickly spot and resolve ATR issues.

An interactive question and answer session will follow.

During this one-hour presentation, Goodwin Procter partner William E.
