Recorded on: Jun. 5, 2014

PAUL DUDEK: OK. We are back live here at Global Capital Markets. After an interesting panel we move to something that I was going to say-- and I'm not sure which panel is the best because they can't all be the best-- but this I think is the best panel because we have two luminaries on the international accounting world, two IRFS experts as part of family.

Board Oversight and Program Structure: The Authority and Independence of a Program

Transcripts  Transcripts    

Recorded on: Jun. 3, 2014

REBECCA: Along those lines, we're going to do some benchmarking in the next day and a half. Not a ton of it I think. At the last Compliance and Ethics Institute I maybe forced a little too much benchmarking at you all and got a little feedback that we don't need to do it for every single panel. So we're cutting back a little bit, but I think it's really very helpful. In part because it informs our discussion here today, and in part because it gives ...

Recorded on: Jun. 3, 2014

REBECCA WALKER: OK. Alright. We're going to get started on our final session of the conference. And it's a good one. It's a great topic. Social media. I noticed on Seth Cohen's list of his PricewaterhouseCoopers risk list, where they had asked compliance officers around the world to rank risks, social media was actually kind of near the bottom. It was like one of the last three or four risk areas. But I do think it's a risk that we are all taking ...

Transcripts  Transcripts    

Recorded on: Jun. 3, 2014

REBECCA WALKER: All right. Now we're going to get started with our lunch time simulation exercise. As I think has been clear throughout the morning, you can't really talk about one program element without bringing in all the others. So when we talked about audit and assessment just now, we also talked about program structure, we talked about training, and you really need all of the different components of a program to make it work well together. This ...

Recorded on: May. 29, 2014

GREGORY P. WILLIAMS: Let's go ahead and get started. As I said this morning, there has been increased attention in Delaware to the vehicle of appraisal.

And so we're going to discuss that. And we have a really expert panel to do so. To my immediate left is my partner, ...

Multi-Forum Litigation

Transcripts  Transcripts    

Recorded on: May. 29, 2014

STEPHEN P. LAMB: So welcome back. Our next panel, we will be discussing the phenomenon of multi-jurisdictional litigation, which sounds more benign than it is. It's where, in the same set of facts, in the same transaction involving all the same players, lawsuits are filed in many different, or at least several jurisdictions. Attacking the same thing and seeking the same relief. It just creates sort of headaches for everyone about how to manage it. ...

Next to Paula is Hank Gallagher-- oh, wrong, sorry. Next to ...
