We are pleased to announce the launch of the Conflict Minerals Consortium, a cross-industry group of service providers working to assist companies in meeting the requirements of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s new conflict minerals rule.
Foley Hoag is the only law firm member of the consortium and will be working to advise clients on the legal aspects of compliance with the new rule, including the relevant securities law considerations. Other members include The Elm Consulting Group International LLC; Source 44 LLC; Resource Consulting Services; MJB Consulting; Schaffer Environmental LLC; and supply chain sustainability specialist Rachelle Jackson.
As part of Foley Hoag’s efforts to provide advice on compliance with the new rule, on Tuesday, October 2, I will join my colleagues Robert Sweet and Amy Lehr in presenting a webinar, Preparing for Compliance with the SEC’s Conflict Minerals Rule: Challenges Ahead!. Information on registration is available here.
