With the revenue and lease standards in the rear-view mirror but CECL still to be adopted, it is as important as ever to keep up with new and evolving accounting standards and regulations especially given the SEC’s Disclosure Modernization and Simplification initiatives. The Annual Forum will provide key insights and updates from regulators, industry and topic experts. Attendees will learn about the standard-setting agenda of the FASB as well as updates on rulemaking, interpretive guidance, frequent comments, and enforcement actions emanating from the SEC. In addition, we have a panel on ethical challenges which qualifies for ethics credit for CPE purposes. Our experienced faculty will provide practical approaches to new and complex accounting and disclosure requirements.
Fenwick securities enforcement co-chair Michael Dicke will be speaking on the panel “Staying Out of Trouble – SEC Enforcement Update” from 3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. on December 2. The panel will cover enforcement priorities, recent cases and their impact, whistleblower awards, and managing the enforcement process.
