The Practising Law Institute (PLI) will host its Annual Disclosure Documents Conference, where speakers will discuss the current disclosure requirements and developments affecting annual disclosure documents, proxy soliciting materials and ongoing disclosure practices of SEC reporting companies, as well as financial reporting developments and ethical compliance challenges facing lawyers.
