Roundtables & Panel Discussions

The mission of the IIEF is to promote open dialogue on important legal issues and trends. Founded in 2005, the IIEF initially sponsored conferences and roundtable discussions on issues of concern to institutional investors throughout the world. These events provided an opportunity to share information, examine trends and legal rulings, share success stories and formulate strategies for improving corporate governance and ethics.

In 2012, we expanded our conversation to include the complex issues of whistleblowers, bankruptcy, and consumer class actions.  In 2013 we began addressing the growing use of appraisal as an M&A investment strategy.

Each event brings together men and women who are engaged at a high level in the legal topic under discussion.  Our participants include leading academics, corporate executives, civil rights advocates, financial regulators, defense and plaintiffs attorneys, judges, consultants and investors from a wide range of institutions – public, private, Taft-Hartley, U.S. and international, private equity and hedge funds.

Participation is by invitation only to assure a diversity of opinions and experience – and a high level of intellectual exchange. To nominate someone or be considered as a participant, please email:

IIEF Members are invited to read discussion summaries and workbook materials in our Members Only section
