Robert M. Couch Quoted in SNL Financial Article Regarding Housing Finance Reforms

Robert Couch, BABC Attorney and Commissioner for the Bipartisan Policy Center's Housing Commission, was recently quoted in an SNL Financial article entitled "Risk retention dies as housing finance reform stagnates." The article is part of the publication’s Dodd-Frank four-year anniversary series. It explores the “apparent death of risk retention as a meaningful policy tool” as well as the alignment of Qualified Residential Mortgage (QRM) and Qualified Mortgage (QM).

Couch commented on the QRM-QM alignment, saying, “My sense is, from conversations that I've had, that the proposal to wed those two concepts is pretty much a done deal.” He added, “I think if you injected truth serum into them, they'd say, ‘We were trying to come up with a rule that was workable, as opposed to what made the most sense’.”


David Mixon Quoted in Law360 article, "Anti-Troll Patent License Pact May Be More Risk Than Reward"

Registered patent attorney David Mixon was recently quoted in a Law360 article entitled "Anti-Troll Patent License Pact May Be More Risk Than Reward" The article explores what patent value is lost for companies that use Google Inc. and others’ newly created patent licensing network for security against “patent trolls.”

"Particularly for small companies," said Mixon, "the risk of undercutting the value of a patent to potential acquirers could outweigh the benefit of potential protection of nonpracticing entity suits."
