Frank Aquila and Sarah Payne Author Article on Social Media IssuesMarch 13, 2013
The March 13 issue of Bloomberg BNA's Corporate Counsel Weekly published an article titled, "Investor Relations in the Social Media Age," co-authored by Mr. Aquila and Ms. Payne. In the article, Mr. Aquila and Ms. Payne explore issues to be considered by legal and investor relations teams as companies increasingly seek to use social media to communicate with investors. They point out that "lawyers will often have to be creative in forging a path through social media that does not run afoul of legal requirements while at the same time meeting the company's investor relations objectives." Mr. Aquila and Ms. Payne note, "as lawyers, we are key to facilitating the proper use of these new communication outlets to meet the company's investor relations agenda."
