On May 8, 2012, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP’s Silicon Valley office hosted a one day symposium on Weathering a Crisis for corporate leaders and general counsel. Panel discussions focused on how to effectively handle a crisis before it becomes public; how to navigate the media while preserving your company’s public image; and how to implement sound strategic plans and compliance programs in order to avoid corporate wrong-doing.

President Obama just signed into law the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (Time/CNN coverage). The Act contains a number of governance-related provisions that will affect all U.S. public companies—and their boards, and is likely to increase the influence of shareowners in corporate governance matters almost immediately. The NACD and Weil, Gotshal & Manges are putting on a complimentary webinar to help you understand the bill’s likely impact. Although focused on boards, I’m sure it will be very informative to shareowners as well. Registration. Overview of the act. Friday, July 30, 2PM-3:15PM (Eastern time)
