Overview

Why You Should Attend

This two-day program is tailored to provide an introduction of the U.S. securities laws and the fundamentals of securities laws practice, as well as to give pragmatic guidance for securities lawyers practicing in today’s public and private offerings. 

Our faculty of experts will not only dive into the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, but they will address the regulatory basis for the governing rules and balance the discussion with real-world best practices. Panels will also discuss issues related to SEC reporting, regulatory changes and rule proposals, and how the securities laws apply to mergers, acquisitions, and other corporate transactions. 

One feature of this year’s program is a roundtable conversation about the recent developments and hot topics in securities law. Various members of the faculty will discuss topics ripped from the headlines, such as the latest developments in SPACs, experience with Rule 10b5-1 plans, the “clawback” rules and cybersecurity disclosures. On the horizon is the effectiveness of required disclosures regarding climate change and insider trading policies. Plus – any other relevant topic that participants might suggest to our expert faculty.  

If you’re new to securities law, this is a program that you do not want to miss.
