The Global Public Company Academy is a series of webinars designed to provide public companies with comprehensive advice on matters relating to capital markets transactions; federal securities laws compliance; corporate governance; executive, equity, and director compensation; and the ever-changing responsibilities of board members, as well as relevant litigation developments affecting US, European, and Asian public companies and companies intending to go public.
These webinars bring together Morgan Lewis’s securities, corporate governance, executive compensation, and litigation lawyers to cover updates on current developments impacting public companies. The program is set up so that each session is self-contained, and geared toward learning in an efficient and convenient format. Participants can pick topics of particular interest or relevance, or attend the entire series.
