On January 19, 2011, at 1:00 p.m. EST, Mintz Levin hosted a webinar entitled “Practical Tips and Strategies for Public Companies Navigating the New “Say on Pay” Regime — Are You Ready?”
Beginning January 21, 2011, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, signed into law by President Obama, requires public companies to solicit votes of their stockholders regarding the compensation of their executive officers and how frequently this vote should be taken.
These provisions are expected to significantly change the way public companies interact with their shareholders with regards to executive compensation. Mintz Levin organized this webinar for our clients on these provisions as well as the SEC’s proposed rules on “Say on Pay,” “Say on Frequency,” “Say on Golden Parachutes,” and related disclosures. Also discussed — how public companies are dealing with the SEC’s compensation risk disclosure rule adopted last year. Attendees of the webinar learned practical tips and strategies on drafting disclosures and what to expect during this year’s proxy season.
