In the white paper, Hamilton provides insightful perspectives and detailed explanations of the important regulatory decisions driven by the Dodd-Frank Act, including rulemaking on whistleblowers, the Volcker Rule, and credit ratings.  He also explores the “stunning fashion” in which the SEC’s proxy access rule was vacated, as well as the conflicting court opinions on the Commission’s say-on-pay rules, crowdfunding legislation, The Small Company Capital Formation Act, and The Access to Capital for Job Creators Act.

“This is an exciting and tumultuous time in Securities, as the significant changes and notable controversies that filled 2011 will continue to have profound impact and consequences through the coming year,” said Hamilton. “It will be intriguing to see the future interpretations of the Dodd-Frank Act, among others, in 2012.”
