New And Proposed Business Regulations In Challenging Times – Business Law Section Fall 2020 Meeting (Webinar)
Join the Business Law Section for their Fall Meeting: New & Proposed Business Regulations in Challenging Times. Distinguished panelists will speak on topics related to new and proposed business regulations, including:
Political Law Issues in Government Contracting
Tyler Rosen, Counsel in the Political Law Department of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, will discuss the political law issues that arise throughout the life cycle of government contracting. These include lobbying and conflict-of interest rules, contingent fee prohibitions, pay-to-play restrictions, and procurement law requirements. The presentation will also include a discussion of recent developments in New York lobbying rules and campaign finance law.
Data Privacy: How to Advise My Clients on Current and Emerging Regulatory Environment
The regulatory environment is becoming increasingly more stringent concerning managing personal information. Regulators around the world are requiring corporations (for Profit and Non-Profit) to implement or enhance their data handling practices. Through three hypotheticals, the panel will discuss the impact of CCPA, GDPR and the recent Schrems decision and how to advise your clients on complying with existing and emerging privacy statutes and regulations.
Proposed Amendments to the Investment Adviser Advertising Rule: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Robert Plaze will discuss the advertising rule under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 and pending SEC proposals to amend the rule (which among other things would codify previous staff guidance and no-action letters). A key question is whether investment advisers will be better off under the existing rule or the proposed amendments to the rule.
The Pandemic Anti-Monopoly Act and Proposed SEC Regulations on Disclosures for Acquisitions and Dispositions
James Rieger, Esq. of Tannenbaum Helpern Syracuse & Hirschtritt LLP will offer a presentation on the ambitious Pandemic Anti-Monopoly Act with an emphasis on its effects on mergers and acquisitions. A member of CohnReznick will offer a presentation on the SEC’s proposed changes to disclosure requirements affecting acquisitions and dispositions.
From the Producer to Your Glass – Importation and Distribution of Alcohol in New York
Take a “crash” course in alcohol distribution law without getting behind the wheel of a car. This program will provide an overview of the laws affecting the process of moving alcohol from the producer to your glass, including foreign importation, interstate shipment and the three-tier distribution system in New York
