Timken Presents on Dodd-Frank at CLE

On October 25, KLMR attorney Kevin Timken co-presented a CLE titled “Dodd-Frank Securities Law Update” at the Alta Club in Salt Lake City.

Kevin focused on two rules adopted by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the wake of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. He first discussed how the definition of an “Accredited Investor” has changed and explained that, in light of the changes, a consumer “can no longer count equity in [his] primary residence,” as part of his net worth.

He also discussed the SEC’s new whistleblower provisions, which include a provision allowing for payment to a whistleblower based on the amount recovered by the SEC and prohibit employers from retaliating against whistleblowers.

Kevin’s co-presenter was Elliott Taylor, whose remarks focused on future Dodd-Frank developments.
