The recent explosion in clawbacks and litigation against corporations, boards and officers over executive compensation have made it increasingly critical for practitioners to be fluent in the latest tools, case law, and strategies in this developing practice. The growing number of proxy wars, absence of Internal Revenue Service guidance, and changes to exchange listing standards has altered the implantation of executive pay structures, while simultaneously inducing the need for clawback provisions and associated litigation. At the same time, changes to "say on pay" regulations, changing trends in best practices, and accounting issues have all underlined the need for an understanding to these cutting-edge developments. The Rossdale faculty for this seminar features three authorities in this practice, who will describe the latest developments in clawback strategies, accounting procedures & disclosures. Registration includes online access to course and reference materials that serve as a helpful guide to the numerous topics and techniques discussed in the program.
