Dykema Hosts GC Roundtable on SEC Proxy Season Developments

October 30, 2013

On November 7, 2013, Dykema’s Automotive Industry Group, with insight from Ernst & Young, will host a Roundtable aimed at General Counsel and in-house Securities Counsel in public companies.

Among the topics to be covered at the Roundtable by attorneys from Dykema’s Public Company Practice Group:

  • Pay Ratio Disclosure Proposals
  • Social Media Disclosures—Reg. FD Issues
  • ISS Policy on Board Response to Majority Supported Proposals
  • An Update on “Say on Pay” Litigation

Representatives from Ernst & Young will also be on hand to provide an SEC Accounting and Reporting Update and to discuss recent  developments from the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) that affect the audits and compliance reports from public companies.

Rick McDonald , Bloomfield Hills-based member who leads Dykema’s Securities and Public Company practice, notes that as instructive as the SEC and PCAOB updates are sure to be, attendees also derive great value from meeting, exchanging viewpoints and comparing notes with their peers at other companies.

Dykema presenters, in addition to McDonald, will include Mark Metz and Robert Murphy. Aleks Miziolek, Director of the Firm’s Automotive Industry Group, will also be in attendance.
