Join us over breakfast, as our panels discuss the current regulatory and litigation risks that can keep corporate directors, management, and in-house counsel tossing and turning into the early hours.
Topics will include:

  • Our annual summary of securities and fiduciary litigation trends.
  • The most recent developments concerning the Dodd-Frank Act.
  • Compensation and whistleblower issues and their impact in the regulatory and private litigation arenas.

Our panels will feature attorneys from a cross-section of the firm’s practice areas, as well as guest speakers from the corporate sector.
