Seth Phillip Bender
Seth P. Bender, Esq., is a graduate of Washington University in St. Louis, and attended law school at the Fordham University School of Law in New York City. He began his career in the Capital Markets practice at the law firm Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP. Since that time, he has consulted at some of the largest New York buy- and sell-side institutions negotiating new trading documentation and renegotiating preexisting agreements to account for the changes in today’s volatile markets. His experience at investment managers and dealers has provided him with a diverse forum to examine the varying issues applicable to each of these constituents during market swings, and has provided him with a greater understanding of both sides of a trading relationship, the terms generally accepted in the marketplace by dealers, and the inefficiencies created in the negotiation process--knowledge that he believes can streamline the negotiation phase of the ISDA Master Agreement for many industry participants.
