Not enough resources. Not enough time. Too much fun. This is the daily routine of the in-house lawyer at a smaller public company (or the law firm lawyer who serves in that role). These lawyers face challenges that others can't imagine. But yet they overcome many obstacles placed in their path. Join our experts as they share tips on how to overcome these challenges:

  • Barbara Blackford, former EVP, General Counsel & Corporate Secretary, Superior Essex; Senior Advisor, The Conference Board
  • Carrie Darling, Senior Corporate Counsel & Asst Corporate Secretary, Encore Capital Group
  • Bret DiMarco, Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary, Coherent
  • Stacey Geer, Senior Vice President and Associate General Counsel, Primerica
  • Isobel Jones, General Counsel, Peet's Coffee & Tea
  • David Scileppi, Partner, Gunster

Among the topics of this program are:

  • Dealing with the board and shareholder engagement
  • Annual meeting & Exchange Act report preparation
  • Dealing with Form 8-Ks and Section 16 filings
  • Managing the "daily" demand on a small legal department budget
  • Managing - and leveraging - outside counsel
  • Developing and implementing a global compliance program (e.g. FCPA and data privacy)
  • Handling Reg FD & insider trading training
