Sue Morgan, a partner in the firm's Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation practice, has more than 30 years of experience in counseling clients on executive and equity compensation, corporate finance and securities, and insider trading compliance. Sue frequently speaks on such issues as executive compensation, option exchanges, insider trading compliance and 10b5-1 plans, and SEC reporting and disclosure at national and regional conferences of the Society of Corporate Secretaries and Governance Professionals, and the ABA Business Law Section.

Yesterday, the SEC adopted new rules that:

  • Amend Rule 10b5-1 to add new conditions to the availability of the affirmative defense to insider trading liability,
  • Impose new disclosure requirements for periodic reports, proxy and information statements regarding insider trading policies, trading plans of insiders and option grant practices, and
  • Amend Section 16 filing requirements.
