Practising Law Institute: 11th Annual Directors' Institute on Corporate Governance

Practising Law Institute: 11th Annual Directors' Institute on Corporate Governance

Speaking Engagement
In the past year, new expectations have been placed on boards in critical areas of governance, including disclosure, oversight of complex operational issues, and responsiveness to and communication with investors pressing different concerns, such as short-term shareholder value, traditional governance issues and social responsibility. In addition, the Dodd-Frank Act, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and other anti-bribery laws have put new requirements and heightened scrutiny on companies and on boards. At this renowned Institute, leading corporate governance experts—directors, government officials, corporate counsel and academics—will share their perspectives on the fast-changing regulatory environment, the competing pressures being placed on boards, and needed steps boards will want to consider.

WilmerHale Partner Meredith Cross will moderate a panel, "Expanded SEC Disclosure Requirements Aimed at Foreign and Social Policy Objectives," featuring WilmerHale Partner Jennifer Zepralka; Kristen Sullivan, Partner at Deloitte & Touche LLP; Matthew Lepore, Corporate Secretary and Chief Governance Counsel at Pfizer, Inc.
