49th Annual Securities Regulation Institute

49th Annual Securities Regulation Institute

Speaking Engagement

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 in 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. This year’s conference is hosted by Northwestern Pritzker School of Law and will be held virtually.

WilmerHale Partners Stephanie Avakian, Lillian Brown and Meredith Cross will present on the following topics:

  • Ms. Avakian will speak during the morning session “The SEC in 2022,” where former SEC Commissioners and Division Directors will discuss how they expect the agency to approach its mission in 2022, including in areas relating to enforcement policy, public and private company regulation, and more.
  • Ms. Brown will speak during the afternoon session “Corporate Governance Developments: Proxy Reform, Shareholder Proposals, and Rule 10b5-1 Plans,” which will focus on updates on the SEC’s proxy rules reforms such as universal proxy, proxy voting advice, & Rule 14a-8; shareholder proposals trends and developments; the impact of potential Rule 10b5-1 amendments and current market trends; and re-proposed rulemaking on claw-backs.
  • Ms. Cross will moderate the morning session “Updates from SEC Senior Staff: Division of Corporation Finance,” which will feature insights from a panel of deputy directors and disclosure review authorities.
