The Directors Roundtable: Key Issues Facing Boards of Directors: New SEC Enforcement Initiatives and Corporate Governance Risks

With a recovering stock market and important initiatives by the U.S. government, there are significant regulatory and enforcement challenges that Directors must address. Our distinguished panelists will discuss the SEC’s current views regarding enforcement and disclosure issues. Topics will include conducting internal corporate investigations; dealing with whistleblowers; insider trading; the role of the audit committee; voluntary disclosures to regulators; the personal liability of Directors & Officers; and responding to issues under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”). Our panelists will also analyze “best practices” in corporate governance that should be adopted by companies and their Boards to address these key issues.

Goodwin Procter partners R. Todd Cronan and Joseph F. Savage, Jr. are pleased to join distinguished speakers Paul Levenson, Regional Director for Boston of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and Tony Jordan, partner of the Fraud Investigation & Dispute Services at Ernst & Young for “Key Issues Facing Boards of Directors: New SEC Enforcement Initiatives and Corporate Governance Risks,” hosted by the Directors Roundtable Institute.
