I am proud to continue producing quarterly issues of State Attorney General Insider now that I am at Cadwalader.

Many of you have been receiving the Insider these past few years while I was at Buckley, where I spent four wonderful years. I have recently moved to a more expansive platform available to clients at Cadwalader, the United States' oldest law firm, now in its 227th year. At Cadwalader, I can combine my 22 years of government experience with the substantive and legal talent at a top-tier law firm.

In this edition of Insider, we focus on a particularly active time for state Attorneys General and update you on the activities of the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG), the Conference of Western Attorneys General (CWAG), and the Alliance of Attorneys General, as well as the Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA) and the Republican Attorneys General (RAGA) conferences.

In the months to come, we hope to expand Insider and add webinars and other features. We also hope to continue to be as interactive as possible with our readership and will seek out your feedback as we make this revamped quarterly newsletter a valuable addition to your review of state Attorneys General activity.

Gansler looks at state AGs' focus on privacy issues, pharmaceutical companies and, especially, financial institutions' presence on the internet – an area he calls the "Wild West," with internet lending, internet payment and internet banking.
