The Directors Roundtable Invites You to Attend a Program
THE "NEW" SEC:
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU?
Thursday, November 19, 2009, 9:00 - 10:30 A.M.
(8:30 A.M. Registration and Breakfast)
Palace Hotel, 2 New Montgomery Street, San Francisco
There is no fee to attend and MCLE & ISS credit is pending.
After intense public scrutiny over its handling of the Madoff matter and other cases and the criticism it's received in light of today's market turmoil, the SEC is strengthening and reinvigorating its enforcement efforts. Armed with new legal theories, new priorities, newly empowered staff attorneys, and a bigger budget, the SEC is getting more aggressive. Our program will discuss recent developments at the SEC and what these mean to public companies and their officers, directors, and lawyers.
Topics will include:
- More Specialized, Less Supervised: The SEC staff's new look.
- Waive Goodbye: Can you still rely on privilege?
- Clawed: Why the CSK Auto compensation clawback case raises the stakes for any restatement.
- Soft Targets: Why the SEC is going after individuals.
- Law and Order: Are SEC and criminal prosecutor tactics converging?
- Just Send Us Everything: How to respond to the SEC's "simplified" document request.
Who Should Attend:
In-House Counsel, Corporate Directors & Officers, Regulatory and Compliance Officers, and Senior Management
