Overview

In the late summer and fall of 2022, twelve years after passage of the Dodd-Frank Act, the SEC finished the last two rulemakings required by the statute.  The first (“Pay versus Performance”)  requires relatively complex disclosures to compare compensation “actually paid” to executive officers to various company performance measures.  The second requires securities exchanges to adopt standards that require listed companies to adopt policies for the recovery (i.e. “clawbacks”) of “erroneously awarded incentive compensation” received by both current and former executive officers.  Both sets of rules require complex judgments and decisions as companies adopt new policies and prepare new disclosures.  Please join Gary M. Brown of Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP and SEC Institute Director George M. Wilson as they discuss the details of these complex new rules and the implementation steps required.
