Lieff Cabraser partner Michael Miarmi will be presenting a webinar entitled “Delaware Law Update: What Investors Need to Know” for the Council of Institutional Investors on Wednesday, June 26, 2019 from 3:30-4:30pm. The webinar will feature a panel discussion that explores the critical role Delaware law plays in shaping business, both in the United States and around the world, as a result of its advanced general corporation law and dedicated business court, the Delaware Court of Chancery.
Because more than 66% of Fortune 500 companies have made Delaware their legal home, changes in Delaware law from either the courts or the legislature have major ripple effects across the global business community.
Panelists include six securities law experts who will address recent changes in the law to an audience of asset owners, asset managers, issuers and intermediaries, and law and accounting firms generally interested in governance issues and shareholder rights.
