ACC NCR Fall Conference: Hot Topics in Corporate Governance

ACC NCR Fall Conference: Hot Topics in Corporate Governance

Vienna, VA
Speaking Engagement

Effective corporate governance encompasses a wide range of activities to ensure that corporate decisions are made and implemented to achieve objectives and to ensure ethical behavior and legal compliance.

As companies continue to face increased challenges, especially in light of ongoing global volatility, the call for in-house counsel to provide valuable insight to board members and senior management has become far more essential. Increasingly, in-house counsel are also expected to play a “gatekeeper” function in corporate accountability. We will provide guidance and actionable takeaways on legal and regulatory developments and hot topics in corporate governance, in particular the following:

  • Increasing importance and scrutiny of ESG issues
  • Practical considerations around corporate culture issues and oversight, including equity and diversity initiatives and corporate social voice
  • Responsibilities and conduct of gatekeepers
  • Increased scrutiny on board oversight of mission-critical enterprise risks (Caremark)

WilmerHale Partners Lillian Brown, Stephanie Evans and Justin Ochs, and Zoe Sharp, General Counsel at Optoro, will present.
