Program Number: 2653 Presenter: Thomas R. Cushing, Esq., Mark W. Rasmussen, Esq., Evan P. Singer, Esq.

SEC enforcement actions are, more often than not, brought in the administrative forum.

In the face of these challenges, the SEC has recently adopted amendments to the SEC's rules of practice for administrative proceedings. Join our presenters for an important discussion about what changes have been made and whether they provide adequate procedural safeguards.

EU-US Cross Border Transfers, Privacy Shield, Model Clauses, and Binding Corporate Rules

Program Number: 2652 Presenter: Carolyn Krampitz, Esq., David A. Zetoony, Esq.

Multinational companies and United States-based service providers have long struggled with transferring information from the European Union to the United States, and balancing legal compliance with practical need. With the invalidation of the Safe Harbor in 2015, the struggle became even more difficult. Although there remains uncertainty concerning how long the different methods for transferring information will continue to be recognized, with the approval of Privacy Shield, we have finally reached at least a temporary period of stability. This program covers the legal and regulatory issues involved with transferring information from the European Union to the United States, and discusses the three methods that are recognized for doing so: The Privacy Shield, standard model clauses, and binding corporate rules. Note: The Privacy Shield after the Safe Harbor is also the subject of a recent program, EU-U.S. Data Transfer—Life after the Safe Harbor under the “Privacy Shield” (2605), available now on

Program Number: 2645 Presenter: Ann Kotlarski, Esq.

Litigating employment claims can be risky, time consuming and expensive for the parties. An increasing trend in employment cases involving claims for discrimination, retaliation and harassment is to resolve those matters well before trial—often before any dispositive motions are filed or significant discovery is conducted. However, important questions arise, such as: When is the most effective time to mediate such claims? Can the plaintiff’s and defense counsel effectively evaluate a case in the early stages in order to make early resolution meaningful? What does it take to evaluate these types of cases in terms of liability, damages and settlement value? What role do non-monetary factors play in evaluation and resolution? What factors should the parties consider in selecting a mediator? What is the best way to prepare for mediation? How do you avoid the common mistakes that a mediator may make?
