PLI’s 43rd Annual Securities Regulation Institute

November 9, 2011

Event| Corporate Transactions| Corporate & Chancery Litigation

The PLI’s Annual Insitute on Securities Regulation has become the most highly anticipated annual analysis of the current state of securities, financial regulation, and corporate law and practice. In the few years since the financial crisis began, we have seen significant change in each of these areas. Dodd-Frank rulemaking is well underway, having a significant impact on securities practice and corporate governance.

The Institute will provide an important look at what you need to know and do in response to the many Dodd-Frank related developments, as well as other important changes of the past year in the evolving field of securities regulation.

Richards Layton director Greg Varallo will act as a moderator on a panel entitled “Understanding Delaware Corporate Law Developments.” The panel will explore:

  • What is the current state of poison pills and can boards “just say never”
  • Does state law have a role in oversight of risk management and compensation design
  • How far can you go in eliminating or avoiding fiduciary duties in corporations and noncorporate entities
  • Are preferred shareholders really second-class citizens
  • How to deal with defective stock issuances
