I've worked on validated applications so I understand your plight.

Instead of a global class, I've created MDI applications and used the MDI parent as the container for all global information. However, that approach messes up your validation ...

One approach that might help is to create your global object as a class field in the first form. As other forms are created, pass the object by reference to the new forms. IIRC, that should provide what is essentially a global object without actually making it global. You're probably far enough into it that you don't want to backtrack -- just a thought.
