We recently examined key developments at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) during 2019 and consider what to expect in the months ahead for an article in The D&O Diary.

“For public companies and securities practitioners alike, the decade ended with a bang, with changes to certain long-standing practices and several novel,” we explained in the article. We provided an in-depth review and takeaways from seven of the top highlights from the SEC last year, including:

  1. Proxy Advisory Firms Face Proposed Rules.
  2. Lessons Learned from the 2018-2019 Government Shutdown.
  3. Realignment of Division of Corporation Finance.
  4. FAST Act Updates.
  5. Shareholder Proposal Developments.
  6. Scrutiny of Non-GAAP Measures Continues.
  7. Continued Focus on ESG Matters.
