Goodwin Procter is a sponsor of The Directors Roundtable Institute's "Key Issues Facing Boards of Directors: New SEC Enforcement Initiatives and Corporate Governance Risks." A heightened SEC focus on issues like Rule 10b5-1 stock trading plans, vigorous insider trading enforcement and new rules governing companies' uses of social media to communicate with the investing public will be among the topics explored by the SEC and other distinguished speakers. Panelists will also discuss the decline in private securities class actions, the increasing significance (at least in terms of legal costs) of derivative actions, the rise of FCPA claims and an analysis of key D&O insurance issues for public companies and their boards of directors.
Lloyd Winawer, partner in Goodwin Procter's Litigation Department and member of the firm's Securities Litigation & SEC Enforcement practice, will speak on the panel along with other industry leaders. They join panelists Jina Choi, Assistant Regional Director of Enforcement at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and Kristin Feitzinger, Vice President at Cornerstone Research.
