January 23/Web: Post Dodd Frank Clawbacks #MCLE

Recent legislation, SEC enforcement actions and Board compensation committee initiatives have put at risk the compensation of CEOs, CFOs and other senior executives of public companies. Bonuses and stock sale proceeds are now subject to "clawbacks" in the event of material errors in financial statements, under the Sarbanes Oxley and Dodd-Frank statutes. The SEC has begun a series of aggressive enforcement actions seeking "no fault" clawbacks from executives not alleged to have done anything wrong. Many compensation committees of Boards of Directors have implemented "voluntary" clawback provisions for executives. And, Dodd-Frank requires compensation committees to adopt "self-executing" clawback rules, which will be the subject of forthcoming SEC regulations.
These and other recent developments with executive clawbacks will be discussed by a panel of highly qualified experts, including:
  • The securities litigator who defended the SEC's first "no fault" clawback case.
  • A leading compensation consultant who advises the Boards of many Fortune 500 companies on compliance with these evolving clawback requirements.
  • An experienced compensation lawyer who negotiates compensation agreements for executives and their employers.
