PLI will host a two-day program to stay current on disclosure requirements and developments affecting annual disclosure documents and proxy soliciting materials prepared by SEC reporting companies. Attendees will hear from the SEC staff and our faculty, who will focus on anticipated changes to the SEC disclosure regime, current “hot issues,” best practices, and practical pointers. Faculty will discuss any proposed or final regulatory changes, plus domestic and international economic, political and regulatory developments; the impact of tax law changes on disclosures; results of the first year of pay ratio disclosure; cybersecurity disclosure; and trends in environmental, social and governance (ESG) disclosure. Regulatory developments, key areas of staff comment, staff review priorities and interpretations, disclosure drivers and best practices, and “must know” accounting developments affecting financial disclosures will also be covered. The group will also address ethics and whistleblower developments, as these matters impose even further challenges on both in-house and outside counsel. This program will be of interest to attorneys, accountants, financial and compliance officers, disclosure committee members and others responsible for preparing public company disclosures and otherwise overseeing compliance with the securities laws.
Partner Lillian Brown will participate as a speaker on Tuesday, December 11 during the following panels:
- Dodd-Frank Requirements and Disclosure
- Environmental, Health, Safety and Sustainability Disclosure and Shareholder Engagement
- Corporate Governance and Shareholder Proposals
- Solicitation Issues Related to Annual Meetings
