Practising Law Institute: Corporate Governance – A Master Class 2017

Practising Law Institute: Corporate Governance – A Master Class 2017

Speaking Engagement

Public companies and their directors and officers face increasing responsibilities and are under intense scrutiny from investors and regulators. Legal and regulatory changes, including Sarbanes-Oxley, Dodd-Frank and listing standards, as well as overall changing expectations in the marketplace contribute to this new challenging environment. Corporate governance provides the framework within which directors and officers must operate in fulfilling their responsibilities. Further, both in-house and outside practitioners confront significant challenges in mastering corporate governance standards, both in providing day-to-day counseling and in addressing emerging risks. The event faculty will discuss evolving standards and practical ways to deal with this challenging environment.

This program is designed for experienced corporate and securities attorneys with responsibility for advising officers, directors and other senior company officials on their governance matters and issues, as well as for directors and officers themselves.

WilmerHale Partner Meredith Cross will act as co-chair and Partner Lily Brown will moderate a panel session on "The 2017 Proxy Season – Mid-Season Review and Tips for a Successful Outcome."
