Preparing and reviewing this year’s Form 20-F presents several new challenges.  Companies must consider the need for climate change and other ESG disclosures.  COVID-19 disclosures continue to evolve – plus they must be tailored to each company’s specific situation.  Cybersecurity, Brexit and the transition away from LIBOR also continue to present potential disclosure issues.  Join Gary M.
