Where in the World is Corporate Governance?

October 14, 2009

On Oct. 14, lawyers in McGuireWoods’ SEC practice provided an informative meeting regarding updates in case law and changes in the regulatory environment. The webinar reviewed the current state of play with respect to corporate governance reforms under consideration by the SEC, Congress, the stock exchanges, and others. Many of these reforms likely will affect the 2010 annual reporting and annual meeting season. The topics discussed included:

  • Proxy Access
  • Executive Compensation
  • Broker Discretionary Voting
  • Board Structure & Composition & Related Disclosures
