The "New" SEC - What Does It Mean to You? (Palo Alto Presentation)


Menlo Park, CA

After intense public scrutiny over its handling of the Madoff matter and other cases and the criticism it’s received in light of today’s market turmoil, the SEC is strengthening and reinvigorating its enforcement efforts. Armed with new legal theories, new priorities, newly empowered staff attorneys, and a bigger budget, the SEC is getting more aggressive.

Our program will discuss recent developments at the SEC and what these mean to public companies and their officers, directors, and lawyers. Topics will include:

  • More Specialized, Less Supervised: The SEC staff’s new look.
  • Waive Goodbye: Can you still rely on privilege?
  • Clawed: Why the CSK Auto compensation clawback case raises the stakes for any restatement.
  • Soft Targets: Why the SEC is going after individuals.
  • Law and Order: Are SEC and criminal prosecutor tactics converging?
  • Just Send Us Everything: How to respond to the SEC’s “simplified” document request.

This event is also offered in San Francisco on November 19, 2009 and New York on November 19, 2009.
