Tuesday, September 1, 2009 - 01:00

The Practising law institute and the Pennsylvania Bar Institute are co-sponsoring a groupcast workshop titled Advanced Securities Law 2009 on Friday, October 9, at the PBI CLE Conference Center located in the Wanamaker Building, Suite 1010in Philadelphia, PA.

The workshop will begin at 9:00 a.m.and adjourn at 5:00 p.m.

The recent collapse of the stock market, the freezing of credit markets and the overall downturn in the economy have caused lawmakers and regulators to propose and implement measures that significantly impact all areas of federal securities laws. PLI has brought together leading SEC officials and securities law practitioners to provide an in-depth look at these important developments. Participants will consider the practical impact of SEC rulemaking and initiatives including the issues related to the lack of access to credit and capital, TARP, executive compensation, corporate governance, shareholder activism, the required use of XBRL (Extensible Business Reporting Language), and the implementation of international accounting standards.

The workshop co-chairs are Martin P. Dunn, O'Melveny & Myers LLP and Kevin J. Harnisch, Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP.Among the speakers will be Andrew M. Calamari, associate regulatory director, Division of Enforcement, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission; Anne C. Flannery, Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP; Deir D. Gumbs, Covington & Burling LLP; and David M. Lynn, Morrison & Foerster LLP.
