The 9th Annual Institute will be, in many ways, the most important one yet. The keynote address will be delivered on February 26th by Professor Joseph Grundfest of Stanford Law School. Professor Grundfest is widely known as a former SEC Commissioner, leading commentator on securities litigation, and Senior Faculty member at the Rock Center on Corporate Governance. Recently, he has become known as the originator of the “Grundfest Solution” for problems stemming from the Cyan case which he will discuss along with the implications of the forthcoming Goldman appeal. He will also offer his observations on the likely future direction of the SEC.

Day one will feature panels of outstanding practitioners. The securities litigation panel will address Cyan, Goldman and several other important cases that will have a meaningful impact on future practice. The SEC panel will comment on recent developments as well as changes that may occur as a result of the new administration. A third panel will be made up of practitioners who are experienced in Delaware practice and will comment on what are the most important issues in current litigation. We also will have a presentation by experts who compile statistics on case filings.

On day two we will highlight issues related to emerging concerns in our society, economy and businesses. One panel will focus on societal issues including diversity and cybersecurity. In particular this panel will address board duties, responsibilities, risks and potential liabilities that are emerging as society increases its emphasis on ESG. A second panel will engage in-house counsel in identifying and discussing their biggest litigation concerns. It will also address what they are looking for in and from outside counsel. A third panel will address D&O insurance problems and issues in the current environment and areas where the panel believes reform is needed. A fourth panel will feature some of the stars of the emerging generation of securities litigators who will be discussing their take on important securities litigation cases.
