Understanding the Securities Laws 2013
Whether you are new to the field or seeking a quick refresher or an update, this is a securities law primer that you won’t want to miss. PLI's program provides an overview and discussion of the basic aspects of the U.S. federal securities laws by leading in-house and law firm practitioners and key SEC representatives. Emphasis will be placed on the interplay among the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and related SEC regulations, how those laws were affected by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the Dodd-Frank Act and the controversial Jumpstart Our Business Startups (“JOBS”) Act, which created the concept of “emerging growth companies.” Panelists will provide practical guidance on how securities lawyers can address issues that arise under those laws in the contexts of public and private offerings, SEC reporting, mergers and acquisitions, and other corporate transactions.
Paul Hastings partner Douglas Koff is a featured panelist on December 13th to discuss "Liability for Securities Law Violations."For additional information and to register, visit
