Facing Business and Compliance Obstacles - and How to Avoid them in the First Place!
Corporate & Securities Law Institute, Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC)
Howard Berkenblit, David Guadagnoli and Lewis Segall were panelists at the ACC's Corporate & Securities Law Institute on October 4, 2017. They presented a case study based on a mock quarterly earnings release - a disclosure document that will be stocked with many hidden problems (plus a few that the company decided to leave out) - that serves as a platform to discuss a wide variety of recent securities law developments and corporate, M&A and benefits law risks and problems.
Topics covered included:
- Recent areas of SEC focus, accounting issues and ways to improve disclosure
- How to avoid deferred compensation and retirement plan compliance pitfalls
- How to address M&A challenges for public and private companies
- How our GC panelist looks around the corner to avoid obstacles
