Stay current on disclosure requirements and developments affecting annual disclosure documents and proxy soliciting materials prepared by SEC reporting companies. 2014 has been another interesting year with significant events and uncertainties covering a wide spectrum of matters affecting public company disclosures, including the Dodd-Frank Act mandated rulemaking by the SEC; domestic and international economic, political and regulatory uncertainties and developments; cybersecurity incidents and threats; and social media development. Ethics and whistleblower developments have imposed even further challenges on both in-house and outside counsel. The faculty, including SEC staff, will discuss key areas of staff comment, staff review priorities and interpretations, disclosure drivers and best practices, and "must know" accounting developments affecting financial disclosures.
WilmerHale Partner Lily Brown will speak on "Emerging Disclosure Developments," "Considerations for Getting Equity-Related Plans Approved by Shareholders," "Corporate Governance and Shareholder Proposals" and "Solicitation Issues."
