In the Los Angeles & San Francisco Daily Journal, litigation & enforcement partner Jeremiah Williams; tax, employment, and benefits counsel Greg Demers; and associate, Lauren Clement shared insight on Activision Blizzard Inc.’s settlement with the SEC over alleged violations of investor disclosure and whistleblower protection rules.

The authors commented: “The Order represents a remarkable example of the SEC inserting itself into day-to-day management practices—impacting both data collection processes and the drafting of employee separation agreements—with very little guidance as to how companies should attempt to satisfy these requirements.”
