Jonathan Joseph to Present “Dodd-Frank Executive Compensation and Corporate Governance” Webinar for CalBar

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – August 12, 2010. Joseph Law Corporation announced today that its Managing Partner, Jonathan D. Joseph, will present “Dodd-Frank’s Corporate Governance and Executive Compensation Requirements For Public Companies:  Why Planning Now For 2011 is Essential”  via a live 60 minute webinar on August 18, 2010.  The Calbar’s description of Mr. Joseph’s webinar presentation states:

“The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act or “Dodd-Frank” was enacted on July 21, 2010.  Commencing in 2011, a non-binding shareholder “Say on Pay” vote to approve executive compensation may be the most profound executive pay provision in Dodd-Frank. Each public company must also ask its shareholders whether future Say on Pay votes should take place every one, two or three years (Say When on Pay).  When mergers or other acquisitions are submitted to shareholders, public companies will also be required to submit golden parachutes to shareholders for approval (Say on Golden Parachutes). Other notable provisions require enhanced independence for board compensation committees and their advisers and claw backs of erroneously awarded executive compensation as well as new descriptions of pay versus performance and internal pay equity metrics.  Dodd-Frank also explicitly authorized the SEC to adopt “proxy access,” a procedure where shareholder submitted board nominees will be included in the company’s proxy solicitation materials.   Say on Pay, Say When on Pay and Say on Golden Parachutes are far from meaningless.  These new corporate governance requirements will impact as many as 10,000 companies. Learn What is Required, What Isn’t Clear and Pragmatic Steps to Consider Now from a corporate securities practitioner with more than three decades of experience. This webinar is appropriate for inside and outside corporate legal advisers, board members, Board and Compensation Committee Chairman, CEOs, CFOs and investor relations personnel.”

The 60 minute webinar will be presented by Jonathan Joseph live online at 1:00 pm on August 18, 2010 via the CalBar’s website and will be retained in the Calbar’s CLE online archives ensuring that the program  will be available in the future to interested persons including California lawyers seeking participatory continuing legal education credit.  The archived webinar will be available after August 18 at www.calbar.org/online-cle and then clicking on “Tele-Seminars and Webinars”.
