Laura H. Posner to Discuss PCAOB’s Proposal to Amend its Auditing Standards

Public Company Accounting Oversight Board

March 6, 2024

The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) has invited Laura H. Posner, a partner in our Securities Litigation & Investor Protection practice, to speak at a virtual roundtable regarding a proposal to amend PCAOB auditing standards related to the auditor’s responsibility for considering a company’s noncompliance with laws and regulations (NOCLAR) on March 6, 2024, at 9:30 a.m. ET.

If adopted, the proposal would strengthen auditor requirements to identify, evaluate, and communicate possible or actual noncompliance with laws and regulations.

The objective of the PCAOB roundtable is to obtain additional insight from commenters, stakeholders, and experts as the PCAOB’s staff works toward a final recommendation to the Board.

Ms. Posner’s roundtable, which starts at 3:00 p.m., will discuss the economic impact of the proposal, specifically the benefits and costs.
