Litigation challenging equity compensation exploded in 2012 and shows no signs of slowing, with a storm of lawsuits targeting Rule 10b5-1 trading plans threatening to strike for 2013 as well. Securities litigation partners Bruce Vanyo and Michael Diver joined Brooks Stough and Sharon Hendricks of Gunderson Dettmer for a webinar discussion of specific ways companies can avoid, or implement effective responses to, these lawsuits. Moderated by securities litigation associate Christina Costley, the program covered topics including issues raised by the use of 10b5-1 plans and best practices to promote compliance, recent developments in executive compensation-related litigation, and strategies for effectively addressing these issues with regulators to help stop this new wave of lawsuits before it gains momentum.
