As part of our ongoing effort to educate market participants on the practices and procedures related to the securities processing industry, Computershare and Georgeson will be preparing a series of CLE program topics to offer to your law firm. The program time is typically 1 hour and will provide 1 CLE credit.
Our program is ideal for a lunch meeting of corporate and/or securities lawyers at a firm and can be completed in your office. Computershare and Georgeson will work with your firms' CLE rep to accredit the program, present and manage hand-outs.
Please complete the form below to set-up a presentation for your firm.
Feel free to suggest additional topics you like to see offered.
