One of the most visible and highly-regarded securities and corporate law conferences in the country, the Securities Regulation Institute reaches prominent attorneys from both firm and in-house practices. From boardroom updates to issues impacting pre-public companies, the Institute focuses on practical advice for all attorneys advising corporate clients on the ever-changing world of securities and business law. During this three-day event, attendees learn from regulators who write the new regulations, judges who interpret the law to resolve complex disputes, and prominent practitioners who guide their clients through the maze of new legislation, regulations, and jurisprudence.
On Monday, January 28, WilmerHale Partner and Securities Regulation Institute Chair Meredith Cross will provide welcome remarks and an overview of the conference.
On Tuesday, January 29, WilmerHale Partner Lillian Brown will serve as a panelist during the session "Corporate Governance, Annual Meeting, Proxy Statement Developments, and Best Practices," focusing on key developments and areas of concern, the needs and wants of engaged investors, state of play on shareholder proposals, and proxy advisory firms and the likelihood of real changes in light of legislative and regulatory priorities.
On Wednesday, January 30, Ms. Cross will serve as a session chair during the "Hot Topics in Ethics: Cryptocurrency, #MeToo, and More" panel.
