PLI’s 42nd Annual Institute on Securities Regulation

November 10, 2010

Event| Corporate & Chancery Litigation

PLI is proud to present its 42nd Annual Institute on Securities Regulation. This Institute has become the most highly anticipated securities law event, analyzing the current state of securities, financial regulatory, and corporate law. In the few years since the financial crisis began we have seen significant change in each of these areas. Now, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the most far-reaching financial regulatory reform legislation in decades, covers virtually every aspect of financial regulation and has significant impact on securities practice and corporate governance. Given the extraordinary amount of rulemaking the Act will require in the coming months, the Institute will provide an important look at what attendees need to know, and do, in preparation for the coming changes. The consequences of the Act as they relate to the topics addressed at this year’s Institute, as well as the other important developments of the past year in the evolving field of securities regulation, will be examined.

Director Gregory V.  Varallo will chair a panel entitled "Important Developments in Delaware Corporate Law," which will discuss:

  • Aligning economic interest with voting power
  • The boundaries of Revlon and just say no
  • What’s new about poison pills
  • Director duties when controlling shareholders are involved
  • Special issues for preferred shareholders
  • Freedom of contract in alternative entities
