2021 ABA The New Normal of ESG Across Borders Conference

Wednesday, February 10, 2021 - Thursday, February 11, 2021

The 2021 ABA The New Normal of ESG Across Borders Conference will focus on navigating the legal and business opportunities, risks, and challenges of ESG initiatives. Partners Laurie Cerveny and Laura McNally will participate on panels during the conference.

Laurie will moderate the panel “Disclosure of ESG Performance Indicators to Investors, Regulators and Other key Stakeholders," which will discuss what in-house counsel now needs to know what the key performance indicators and disclosure obligations and best practices are to meet the expectations and requirements of global investors, regulators, governments, and other key stakeholders.

Laura will speak on the panel “Director Liability, the Business Judgment Rule and Oversight of Corporate Purpose,” discussing what issues portend for outside director liability, responsibilities of directors and the C-Suite to set the ESG tone for the company, potential effects on directors’ willingness to serve and how directors and the corporations on whose boards they sit can manage these risks and new responsibilities.
