Join Sidley for a discussion and Q&A with former SEC Commissioner Paul Atkins and former Commissioner and Chair Elisse Walter on what to expect from a new SEC Commission following the 2020 presidential and congressional elections.
Topics to be discussed will include:
- Outstanding SEC rule proposals (e.g., public company disclosure reform, mutual fund disclosure, market data reform)
- Recently adopted rules that a new Commission might reconsider (e.g., proxy voting, Regulation BI, private offering reform)
- Public dissents on enforcement issues and possible changes with a new Commission (e.g., corporate penalties, digital assets, waivers of disqualifications)
- How a divided Senate and House might react to changes in the SEC agenda and possible SEC-related legislative issues in a new Congress
