The Society for Corporate Governance Panel

Join Freshfields’ for two panels on Human Rights and the Supply Chain & Navigating Responsible Board Oversight and Shareholder Demands for Books and Records.

Panel 1: Human Rights and the Supply Chain: Overview of US Legal Obligations and Ethical Considerations

The coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the importance of overseeing supply chain management. Over the years we have seen mismanagement result in significant business interruptions as well as high-profile corporate scandals. Our panel will be addressing the regulatory framework applicable to supply chain issues, disclosure considerations, shareholder expectations and shareholder proposal trends, as well as proper governance and board oversight considerations.

Speakers: 

Pamela L. Marcogliese, Partner, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP
Rob Main, CFA, Managing Partner and COO, Sustainable Governance Partners (SGP)
Elizabeth Bieber, Counsel and Head of Shareholder Engagement & Activism Defense, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP

 

Panel 2: Navigating Responsible Board Oversight and Shareholder Demands for Books and Records

Join litigators and corporate governance experts for a discussion of directors’ oversight duties and how directors and corporations can best document that they are meeting them, especially given the ever-increasing use by would-be shareholder plaintiffs of demands for corporate books and records. The panel will highlight recent decisions from the Delaware courts and relevant litigation trends, and identify best practices for directors and companies for email communications, notes, and minutes and other corporate records, including to ensure a strong record of board business while remaining mindful of privilege and discovery obligations.

Speakers:

Meredith Kotler, Co-head of Securities & Shareholder Litigation, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP
Mary Eaton, Co-head of Securities & Shareholder Litigation, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP
Catherine G. Dearlove, Director, Richards, Layton & Finger
Marques Tracy, Senior Associate, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP
