Hot Topics — Dodd-Frank executive compensation and corporate governance update (September 2012)

Published on: Sep 28, 2012

More than two years since President Obama signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act into law, and over 100 rules later, the SEC is less than halfway through issuing the final rules required by the legislation. Although the law largely focuses on regulations for financial institutions, there are several sections applicable to most U.S. public companies. As the two-year mark is passed and we approach the end of the year, this edition of Hot Topics examines where the legislation stands in terms of certain general rulemakings and, specifically, the executive compensation and corporate governance provisions.
