Our instructors focus on three key sections of the massive Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (a/k/a the Dodd-Frank Act): (1) the new consumer financial protection bureau and consumer credit regulations; (2) the enforcement provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act and how they can impact the breadth and powers of federal regulators and state attorneys general; and (3) executive compensation - what`s new for the 2011 proxy season. The new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau established under Dodd-Frank will have broad powers and authorities—many new and revised regulations by new and substantially restructured regulatory bodies are expected, and our panelists provide an overview of this new regulatory framework. Dodd-Frank also changes the regulatory landscape on enforcement powers; learn how such changes might impact your practice and the business of your financial institution clients. Finally, with say-on-pay a true reality for the 2011 proxy season, our faculty addresses the issues public reporting companies and their counsel need to consider now in preparing for annual meetings in 2011.
