Gruenberg, who became FDIC chairman in 2012, holds a JD from Case Western Reserve Law School and an AB from Princeton University, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. He has served as senior counsel to Senator Paul S. Sarbanes, chairman of the Executive Council and president of the International Association of Deposit Insurers. He was vice chairman and member of the FDIC Board of Directors from 2005 until 2012.

Gruenberg has played an active role in major legislation related to financial regulation, including the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act of 1989; the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991; the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act; and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.

"We are excited to welcome Chairman Gruenberg to the Quad," said Michael Barr, the Roy F. and Jean Humphrey Proffitt Professor of Law and faculty director of the U-M Center on Finance, Law, and Policy. "This is a great opportunity for the Michigan Law community to examine whether post-financial crisis reforms are making the financial system safer."

Chairman Gruenberg’s talk titled "Ending Too Big to Fail?" will be held at 11:50 a.m. November 2 in South Hall 1225.

The event is sponsored by the University of Michigan Center for Finance, Law, and Policy (CFLP), Michigan Law, and U-M Ford School of Public Policy.
