Speaker, "New DOL Regulations? Context and Implications," NCEO 2023 Fall Forum

Speaking Engagements

Alan Kandel will present "New DOL Regulations? Context and Implications," at the NCEO 2023 Fall Forum on Thursday, September 28, 2023.

Why would the ESOP community want more regulation? This session will provide background on the mandate to the DOL to issue a final regulation defining "adequate consideration" for ESOPs. The presenter will describe the critical importance of this definition for ESOPs, why the ESOP community has been pushing for regulation, and the potential impact that such a regulation could have on ESOP formation.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe why the term "adequate consideration" is critical to an ESOP transaction.
  • Understand specific ways in which the DOL has taken positions that are inconsistent with reasonable legal standards.
  • Define issues that should be addressed in final regulations on adequate consideration.
