Public companies and their directors and officers face increasing responsibilities and are under intense scrutiny from investors and regulators. Legal and regulatory changes, including Sarbanes-Oxley, Dodd-Frank and listing standards, and overall changing expectations in the marketplace contribute to this new challenging environment. Corporate governance provides the framework within which directors and officers must operate in fulfilling their responsibilities. Further, both in-house and outside practitioners confront significant challenges in mastering corporate governance standards in light of the continuing, rapid development of federal, state and market developments, in providing day-to-day counseling and in addressing a crisis. Our expert faculty will discuss evolving standards and practical ways to deal with this challenging “new normal.”
