Our prestigious Independent Broker Dealer Consortium conferences are the “go-to” event for serious risk-management professionals. It’s where COOs, CEOs and Risk Management Officers interact with leading securities litigators and compliance, cyber security and insurance specialists. Set at one of the premier resorts in the country, attendees are treated to compelling presentations – plus, the absolute smartest methods to address complex issues affecting the industry. Not to mention, our IBDC conferences offer luxurious opportunities to relax, network and socialize on the golf course, in the spa or during a variety of unique, privately-scheduled activities.

Outside of our IBDC Conferences, membership in the organization offers many other valuable resources for successfully running your company within a fast-moving legal and regulatory environment.

Conference Presentations


  • Mark Quinn <span class=Director of Regulatory Affairs" />
    The IBDC conference is the best of its kind for lawyers whose practice focuses on broker-dealers and advisers.  It’s a small group, and everyone who attends is an expert in the field.  The presentations are very specific and the social gatherings are great opportunities to get perspective from colleagues who have been through the difficult issues that everyone is trying to work through.  I have attended for the last five years, and would not miss the event.

    Lilian’s heart for risk management, formed by her days as an attorney and underwriter, led to her bringing together those she has served for decades in the form of the IBDC. The size of the gatherings, the sharing of information by knowledgeable individuals and the networking opportunities make the IBDC a “must do” on the calendar. Always a great investment of time, and the venues and activities guarantee a very enjoyable trip!

    As an IBDC sponsor, I’ve found that the annual conference serves as a multi-purpose outlet for Bates Group, not only in terms of our own client outreach and networking efforts, but also as a one-stop source for keeping on top of the latest issues and topics concerning Broker-Dealers in this age of rapidly evolving economic policies and occurrences. I believe it goes without saying that Lilian Morvay’s success in bringing together the best in the BD field has proven to be invaluable to IBDC’s attendees, and Bates looks forward to continuing its relationship with IBDC as both a sponsor and attendee.

  • Greg Curley  <span class=Senior Litigation Counsel" />
    The IBDC really has become a “must attend” event for in-house legal and compliance counsel at independent broker-dealers. I love the fact that this conference is exclusively designed for the IBD space. The regulatory and litigation issues faced in the IBD arena are often very technical and unique to the IBD world, and the IBDC stays right on top of these issues as they develop. Year after year, I find a large portion of the agenda relates directly to matters sitting on my desk. The Conference has introduced me to counsel with new expertise and I always leave with new ideas that have positive impact on my docket. I am already looking forward to next year’s Conference.

    I have been attending the IBDC Conference hosted by Lilian Morvay for the last 8 years and have found it to be one of the most informative conferences on key hot topics and trends in the broker/dealer industry. The law firms who deliver the sessions do an excellent job in presenting. I look forward to attending this worthwhile seminar each year.
