NEW YORK, Oct. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. today announced the launch of its webinar series in partnership with Mayer Brown LLP on securities law matters, with the first webinar to be held on Wednesday, October 17, 1 PM – 2 PM ET. Participants will have the opportunity to earn free CLE credits by attending the live hour-long webinar.
The first webinar in this series will feature Michael Hermsen, partner in Mayer Brown's Chicago office and a member of the Corporate & Securities practice, and Anna Pinedo, co-leader of Mayer Brown's Global Capital Markets practice and a partner in the firm's New York office. They will cover several timely topics, including guidance around the foreign private issuer definition and areas of focus for SEC comments related to annual reports.
"The evolving framework for securities laws requires busy practitioners to keep pace with regulatory changes that can impact their clients," said Mark Nelson, a legal analyst within the securities group at Wolters Kluwer. "Partnering with experts at leading law firms like Mayer Brown is one way Wolters Kluwer can provide educational opportunities for customers to not only learn about the latest regulatory developments but also to get a sense of the possible direction of future regulatory changes."
"IPOs by foreign private issuers have represented a significant percentage of recent transaction volume and foreign issuers continue to look to the U.S. capital markets for capital raising, making issues affecting FPIs a priority for many market participants," said Anna Pinedo of Mayer Brown.
Other topics covered in the webinar will include:
- Areas of focus for SEC comments in anticipation of upcoming 20-Fs and 40-Fs;
- Disclosure simplification;
- Exhibits, HTML and XBRL for foreign private issuers and IFRS filers; and
- Additional areas of likely SEC focus in the coming months.
