Welcome to the September 2016 BOTW.  The kids went back to school, and so should we.  Our September BOTW picks focus on the details you must know to become a well-informed professional.  K&L Gates educates on AML, Drinker outlines the FINRA pay-to-play rules, and Ropes & Gray explains California’s new fee disclosure rule. Sadis also teaches a few things about insider trading litigation.  “To create something exceptional, your mindset must be relentlessly focused on the smallest detail.” (Giorgio Armani)
