March 21, 2017

Management Liability/D&O

Always a blockbuster event, this year’s Stanford Directors’ College will provide its 23rd forum for public company director and officer education.

Stanford Directors College

Stanford Directors’ College offers a timely look into the issues directors and officers are facing right now. You can see the full agenda here.

The keynotes for this event are always a highlight. This year, keynotes at Stanford Directors’ College include some particularly interesting public figures:

 

  • Marissa Mayer, CEO, President and Director, Yahoo! Corporation; Director, Walmart
  • Condoleeza Rice, Former U.S. Secretary of State; Professor and Hoover Institution Senior Fellow, Stanford University; Founding Partner, RiceHadleyGates LLC
  • Aida Alvarez, Director, HP Inc., Oportun, and Zoosk
  • Brian Cornell, Chairman and CEO, Target Corporation; Director, Yum! Brands
  • Patricia Russo, Chairman, Hewlett Packard Enterprise; Director, General Motors, Merck & Co. and ALCOA, Inc.
  • Tim Sloan, CEO & President, Wells Fargo Company
  • John W. Thompson, Chairman, Microsoft Corporation
  • Robert E. Rubin, Counselor, Centerview Partners

This year I’ll be leading two panel discussions on the following topics:

  • Defend your company, defend yourself: private litigation strategies
  • Responding to government investigations

These breakouts were popular last year, and I expect the same will be true this year. Each breakout will provide an overview of the litigation environment, as well as strategies directors and officers can employ to protect themselves and the companies they serve.

For more insight into these topics ahead of the event, see earlier posts I’ve written:

I hope to see you there.
