Webinar: Corporate Disclosure and Enforcement Impact of COVID-19 on SEC Filings

Events / Tuesday, April 14, 2020

Public companies are navigating the continuing unprecedented impacts and uncertainties created by the COVID-19 pandemic, while preparing for upcoming quarterly earnings releases, filings and annual meetings. Recent Division of Enforcement and Division of Corporation Finance releases have left no doubt that the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) will aggressively pursue individuals and entities that take advantage of market vulnerabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic, including by trading on material nonpublic information or failing to disclose material information regarding the impact of the pandemic. During this complimentary webinar, former SEC staff covered the latest guidance from the divisions of Corporation Finance and Enforcement, developing best practices and open questions relevant to issuers and their officers as they manage the disclosure and related regulatory challenges of this rapidly changing environment.

  • John J. Carney, formerly with the SEC Division of Enforcement; co-leader of BakerHostetler’s White Collar, Investigations and Securities Enforcement and Litigation team
  • John J. Harrington, formerly with the SEC Division of Corporation Finance; member of BakerHostetler’s Securities and Corporate Governance team
