New Edition: Informal Corporate Disclosure Under Federal Securities Law—2012 Edition

Mitigate reputation risk by assuring that disclosures for corporate communication vehicles such as press releases, speeches, analyst conference calls, webcasts, websites, blogs and investor roadshows adhere to appropriate standards of practice. Written by Wolters Kluwer attorney-editors Ted Trautmann, Anne Sherry and Jim Hamilton, Informal Corporate Disclosure Under Federal Securities Law, 2012 Edition examines the regulation of these types of informal disclosures (as distinguished from formal, highly structured disclosure in SEC filings). Coverage includes discussion of federal securities law, rules and court decisions; self-regulatory organization rules for listed companies; and standards of practice prescribed by the National Investor Relations Institute (NIRI). This edition incorporates the NIRI’s 2012 revision which supersedes the previous standards of practice issued in 2004. Click here for details and to order.
