PLI Groupcast: Corporate Governance: Master Class 2018

PLI Groupcast: Corporate Governance: Master Class 2018
This is a webcast of the live New York session presented by PLI and hosted by the CMBA.

This program will both highlight the fast-moving market and legal and regulatory developments that directors, officers and their advisers face, as well as provide practical guidance as to how to address them.

Why You Should Attend

This program will address key corporate governance issues faced by boards and principal board committees.  Public companies and their directors and officers face increasing responsibilities, and even increased risk of liability.  They are also under intense scrutiny and in at least some cases significant pressure from investors and regulators.  Changing investor expectations – including more vocal expectations from traditional, large institutional investors and increased investor willingness to seek or force change – have changed the environment in which directors and officers and their advisers operate.  These developments have been complicated by significant changes, including evolving standards under Delaware and Federal securities law, and uncertainty about what to expect in terms of Federal legislative, rulemaking and enforcement developments following the change in administration in 2017. 

Corporate governance provides the framework within which directors and officers must operate in fulfilling their responsibilities.  In-house and outside advisers are called on both to provide day-today counseling and to address crisis situations in the corporate governance context. Our program will both highlight the fast-moving market and legal and regulatory developments that directors, officers and their advisers face, as well as provide practical guidance as to how to address them.
