On July 21, 2010, a memo, entitled “Corporate Governance and Executive Compensation Provisions in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act,” was issued to Cravath clients. The Dodd-Frank Act, which provides for significant changes in the financial regulatory system in the U.S., also contains a number of provisions relating to corporate governance and executive compensation that will apply beyond the financial sector and affect most public companies. The memo examines the effects of those corporate governance and executive compensation provisions.
For more information, contact Cravath partners John W. White, William P. Rogers, Jr., C. Allen Parker, Marc S. Rosenberg, Susan Webster, Richard Hall, LizabethAnn R. Eisen, Eric W. Hilfers and Jennifer S. Conway or Senior Attorney Kimberley S. Drexler.
