Dealing with SEC Enforcement & Disclosure: Corporate and D&O Personal Liability

Directors, C-Suites, and Corporations are facing more frequent major investigations, litigation and potential personal liability, including individual and parallel government enforcement actions driven by the SEC, DOJ, shareholders, whistleblowers, and even competitors. These Distinguished Speakers will analyze how corporate leaders and their counsel can minimize the liability risks for themselves and their companies including these key issues:

  • Regulators’ current compliance and enforcement priorities;
  • Determining when individuals need separate counsel and accountants; and considerations for joint representations with corporate counsel;

The Directors Roundtable Institute is a not-for-profit which organizes worldwide programming for Directors and their advisors.
