Ross Institute of Accounting Research, serving as host. Other panelists included George Canellos, Director of the SEC's New York Regional Office; Jonathan Streeter, Dechert LLP and former Deputy Chief of the Criminal Division at the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York; Jonathan Macey, Yale Law School; Michele Rose, Latham and Watkins LLP; Mary Billings, NYU Stern School of Business; Mark Kornfeld, Baker and Hostetler LLP; and Hilary Williams, UBS Investment Bank.
