Latham & Watkins provides an overview of key regulatory developments, including final rules from the SEC on pay versus performance disclosures, clawback policies and 10b5-1 insider trading plans, updates to Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS) and Glass Lewis voting guidelines, considerations relating to CEO pay ratio disclosures and equity plan proposals and other important proxy season housekeeping and reminders, including as they relate to say on pay and the say on pay frequency vote and compensation advisor independence and risk assessments.

Even public companies with a strong code of conduct, an exemplary tone at the top, robust internal controls, and a culture of compliance may face allegations of misconduct that can lead to an investigation by the Division of Enforcement of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC, the Enforcement Division, or the Commission). For a public company, the initiation of an SEC investigation can be startling to the company’s board and senior management. This Guide developed by Latham & Watkins is a resource for public company executives and in-house counsel facing an investigation by the Commission. Competently navigating the investigative process from the beginning is imperative and can help a company avoid an enforcement action or otherwise minimize potential sanctions, while allowing senior management to focus on operating the company’s business.
