Potter Anderson Partner, Myron T. Steele, to Serve as Keynote Speaker at PLI's Corporate Governance - A Master Class 2016
Potter Anderson partner and former Chief Justice of the Delaware Supreme Court, Myron T. Steele, will serve as keynote speaker at PLI's Corporate Governance - A Master Class 2016 on February 10, 2016 in New York.
This program will address key corporate governance issues faced by boards and principal board committees. Public companies and their directors and officers face increasing responsibilities and risk of liability. They are also under intense scrutiny and in at least some cases significant pressure from investors and regulators. Changing investor expectations and increased investor willingness to seek or force change, through activist campaigns and other methods, have changed the environment in which directors and officers and their advisers operate. These developments have been complicated by significant legal and regulatory changes, including evolving standards under Delaware law and SEC and other Federal developments in rulemaking and enforcement. Corporate governance provides the framework within which directors and officers must operate in fulfilling their responsibilities. In-house and outside advisers are called on both to provide day-to-day counseling and to address crisis situations in the corporate governance context. Join our expert faculty to gain an understanding of the fast-moving market, as well as the legal and regulatory developments that directors, officers and their advisers face, and to gain practical guidance as to how to address them.
