Course Materials

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. Join these experts as they provide practice pointers on what approaches to preparing the proxy for mid-cap & smaller companies work best:

Join our experts:

  • Sarah Wood Braley, Assistant General Counsel, Denbury Resources
  • Keir Gumbs, Partner, Covington & Burling LLP
  • Adam Kramer, Sr. Counsel - Benefits & Executive Compensation, KBR
  • Eileen McCarthy, VP & Associate General Counsel, JetBlue Airways

Among the topics of this program are:

  • What goes in the proxy for mid-cap & smaller companies - and why?
  • What are the most commonly missed items to include in the proxy?
  • How much should outside counsel be relied upon?
  • What are the most efficient way to maintain disclosure controls?
