General Counsel are more important than ever in history. Boards of Directors look increasingly to them to enhance financial and business strategy, compliance, and integrity of corporate operations. In recognition of our distinguished Guest of Honor’s personal accomplishments and of his company’s leadership as a corporate citizen, we are honoring Lawrence Jacobs, Group General Counsel of News Corporation. His address will focus on innovative Internet issues. Kirkland partner Yosef Riemer will participate in a panel discussing online sharing sites; protecting content from manipulation in the digital age; intellectual property, antitrust and the consumer; and Directors & Officers liability under new SEC enforcement policies.
