Securities Law Update

Webinar hosted by the National Association of State Treasurers

Brian Garzione led the discussion on the SEC Staff Legal Bulletin (the “SLB”) and the SEC Statement on COVID-19 disclosure.

The SLB summarizes certain previous SEC statements regarding the application of the antifraud provisions of the federal securities laws.

The SEC Statement on COVID-19 disclosure provides guidance on voluntary disclosure relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.
