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”.

SF Bank Attorneys Association Invites Jonathan Joseph to Speak about Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – July 21, 2010. The San Francisco Bank Attorneys Association (SFBAA) has invited Jonathan Joseph to be its keynote speaker regarding the newly enacted Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform Act at its monthly luncheon to be held at the Merchants Exchange in San Francisco on August 2, 2010.   Mr. Joseph’s speech to SFBAA’s membership entitled “Dodd-Frank Act – Selected Provisions Impacting the Financial Services Industry” will focus on how and why the final financial reform legislation took shape and its implications for banking organizations.

Mr. Joseph, who has over three decades of legal experience in the financial services industry, observed that “The genesis of this far reaching Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act began in 1999 shortly after repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933, which had mandated a clear demarcation between commercial banking and investment banking for more than six decades. Significant new measures in the Dodd-Frank Act will change the shape of Wall Street and the financial services industry for years to come by filling legal and regulatory gaps and reregulating what had largely been an unfettered environment in which the major financial related companies had become too intertwined to fail.”

The SFBAA is a time honored institution dating back to 1939. Over many years its members have been among the leaders of the legal and business community in San Francisco. Today, its membership includes in-house attorneys from major California banks, outside lawyers in law firms that practice banking law, venture capital attorneys, lobbyists and federal banking and California Department of Financial Institution regulators. Additional information about joining the SF Bank Attorneys Association and attending the monthly luncheon program can be found at the SFBAA website at http://www.sfbankattorneys.com.
