May 2015 Client Alert

The rationale behind these proposed rules is to provide greater transparency so that shareholders are better informed in electing directors and submitting advisory votes related to executive compensation. The proposed rules were promulgated under the requirements of Section 953(a) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Read the Client Alert here.
