Partners Michael Diver and Mark Wood will participate in PLI's securities law primer "Understanding the Securities Laws 2012." The two-day seminar will discuss the basic aspects of U.S. federal securities law, with an emphasis on the interplay among the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and related SEC regulations, how those laws were affected by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the Dodd-Frank Act and the JOBS Act, and how securities lawyers can solve practical problems that arise under those laws in the context of public and private offerings, SEC reporting, mergers and acquisitions, and other common corporate transactions.

Mr. Wood, who also serves as co-chair of the program, will  speak on "Disclosure Basics" at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 25. Mr. Diver will speak on "Ethics and Professionalism in Securities Law" at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, October 26.
