The panelists will describe their experiences and offer practical guidance and advice on potential pitfalls.
Sutherland Partners Cynthia M. Krus and Adam B. Cohen are part of a panel that will present "Who Really Has ’Say on Pay’?" on Tuesday, October 26. The panel will address recent developments in executive compensation as they relate to Say on Pay Proposals and will explore ways companies can position themselves to prepare for mandatory shareholder input on executive compensation. In what promises to be a lively and relevant discussion, the panel will discuss issues such as the federal guidelines on compensation, severance, and clawbacks, proper disclosure of employment agreements and other "golden parachute" agreements, SERPs, and mandated compensation risk disclosure.
Also on Tuesday, Sutherland Partner Jacob Dweck is presenting "Which Way is the Wind Blowing Today? A Practical Review of the Legal Implications of Climate Change." This program will separate myths from realities and explain the practical implications of climate change on your companies, including the effects of current and proposed legislation and regulation around the world on operations and products, as well as new litigation risks. Specific topics will include recent greenhouse gas regulation and proposed regulations, financial disclosure standards, compliance mechanisms such as cap and trade proposals, insurance aspects and risk allocation.
