Event & Webinar

September 22, 2020

This webinar will discuss: ESG awareness is becoming a priority for issuers, investors, asset managers and, increasingly, regulators. Investors’ consideration of the social and environmental impact of their investment activities (ESG investing) is transforming the proposition offered by many asset managers and the ways in which they operate. Emerging ESG trends and issues—including developing differences in standards, definitions and ratings—also affect the way that issuers and asset managers think about performance and disclosure. Understanding the evolving legal and regulatory framework relating to ESG in the U.S. and abroad is increasingly crucial for U.S. asset managers, particularly legal and compliance professionals.  Understanding this framework is more important than ever in a shifting regulatory and political landscape that has produced some uncertainty. In light of this, Dechert attorneys will discuss current U.S. and EU developments in ESG impacting on asset managers, including: Regulatory approaches, including EU regulation, SEC activity and the proposed DOL rule on ESG investing and related ERISA guidance. Investor expectations. The shifting regulatory and political landscape on ESG and how the U.S. elections may impact the legal and regulatory framework relating to ESG. The practical impact of these developments on U.S. asset managers. Please note that this event is closed to journalists, reporters and any other members of the press.  If you are a member of the press and are interested in speaking with someone about the topics being discussed at this event, please contact Ashley Baldev at ashley.baldev@dechert.com.

Event & Webinar

September 30, 2020

Innovation and improvement often arise in the wake of global crises. Will the same be true for COVID-19 and international arbitration? On 30 September 2020, NYIAC will host the authors of the 2019 book, The International Arbitration Rulebook: A Guide to Arbitral Regimes, to discuss the dramatic innovations that have become commonplace in international arbitration since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic - and whether those innovations will continue after the crisis subsides. Will international arbitration be changed on a permanent basis, and if so, will the changes be for the better? Topics will include virtual hearings, expedited procedures, and the increased use of submission agreements to commence international arbitration cases and dispositive motions to resolve them. The panel will also discuss the recent revisions to the LCIA Rules in this context. For queries related to this event, please contact Abby Cook.
