The Annual Corporate Counsel Institute will be celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2011. During that time, it has grown into one of the leading corporate law programs for in-house and outside counsel. The program is developed in cooperation with the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) and focuses on practical, relevant and comprehensive topics. Speakers include high ranking government officials, leading attorneys from all fields of practice and corporate counsel from major national and international corporations. The Institute agenda combines critical substantive law updates with pragmatic tips for practitioners to perform their job more effectively, and Part 1 will address the following topics:

• Can a mutual fund investment adviser be held liable for the fund’s misleading statements about trading practices?
• Whether a plaintiff can state a fraud claim based on a pharmaceutical company’s nondisclosure of adverse event reports even though the reports are not alleged to be statistically significant
• Can retaliation be claimed on the basis that a relative or associate of a worker was punished because the worker raised a workplace discrimination claim?
