2023 ACC Securities Law + Disclosure: An Executive-level Seminar

July 19-21, 2023

New York, NY

Do you have the knowledge to succeed in a publicly-traded company? 

Whether you are an aspiring GC or already in the role, it’s imperative for you to demonstrate an executive-level understanding of securities law and disclosure requirements. 
Otherwise successful in-house lawyers often suffer professionally due to an experience gap in this area, which is precisely why the ACC Securities Law + Disclosure seminar is so important. By participating in this one-of-a-kind seminar, you will come away empowered to speak with confidence about securities and financial disclosure matters with fellow c-suite executives and directors.  
This program is limited to 12 participants and highly customized to individual participants' unique business contexts.

The in-person program is designed to provide a strong foundation without wasting your valuable time with unnecessary case law or history. You will learn how the issues, rules, and requirements are relevant to your situation, company, and filings.

I attended the ACC Securities Law + Disclosure seminar in advance of becoming my company's general counsel and it was incredibly helpful for me to augment and round-out my securities law knowledge especially since my background as a litigator didn't include a lot of experience working in that space.
