      Fall of the Ivory Tower: Controlled Companies and Shareholder Activism

      Despite longstanding complaints about governance and the tyranny of a few who may or may not hold a meaningful economic interest in the company they founded and/or now control, investors have continued to allocate to controlled or quasi-controlled companies.

      When CEOs Date Employees, it Can Get Messy Fast

      A CEO is entitled to a love life. But when it involves someone at work , things get very dicey very fast -- for the CEO , for the employee and, if handled badly, for the company.

      A Review of Recent Whistleblower Developments

      In late September, Senators Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), and Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) introduced the Whistleblower Programs Improvement Act , which would protect financial whistleblowers who report internally from retaliation. This bill, which mirrors the Whistleblower Protection Reform Act of 2019 and passed in the House of Representatives in May, appears similarly aimed at clarifying that the Dodd-Frank Act’s anti-retaliation provision applies equally to employees who ...
