PLC is offering another free webinar – “Protecting Against Catastrophic Loss with D&O Liability Insurance”:
In the wake of the recent financial crisis, the passage and implementation of the Dodd-Frank Act, and heightened enforcement activity by the SEC, the FDIC and other agencies, companies and their legal counsel face increased exposure for civil and criminal governmental investigations and lawsuits brought by the government and private litigants. Such investigations and litigation can have serious financial consequences. Directors’ & officers’ (“D&O”) liability insurance can provide important protections against these potentially catastrophic losses.
Join Practical Law Company and Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP for a free 75-minute webinar in which Helen K. Michael, Partner, Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP, Louise E. Ma, Partner, Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP and Margaret J. Davidson, Editor, Practical Law Company, will provide an overview of recent legal developments creating increased risks for companies including:
- New SEC units overseeing enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and regulatory oversight of financial practices and markets.
-The rise in whistleblower tips and enforcement activity resulting from implementation of the Dodd-Frank Act.
-The SEC and other regulators’ creative and aggressive pursuit of expanded theories of liability.
- The growing usage of investigative techniques including wiretapping and electronically recorded evidence, “sweeps” investigations, and pre-complaint subpoena power.
