Governance challenges for public-company executives and their counsel are on the rise early in 2022, with aggressive proxy proposals, proposed Securities and Exchange Commission disclosure mandates, and the ever-present litigation risks converging together. Our panelists will assess the trends in this year’s environmental and social proxy proposals, discuss SEC activity and necessary responses, and offer their experienced take on how those development can drive private securities and consumer-fraud litigation.
