A Seat at the (Round)table


Evolving Perspectives on Shareholder Primacy

In this lightning round session, we hear perspectives from the board room and the general counsel’s office on the Business Roundtable’s recent statement on the purpose of a corporation. Is there room at the table for all of a corporation’s stakeholders? Or should shareholders insist on a table for one?

The members of this panel include:

  • Mary P. Ricciardello – Board of Directors at Devon Energy and Noble Corporation

  • Kelly B. Rose – Senior Vice President, Legal, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary at ConocoPhillips

  • Clint Rancher – Partner at Baker Botts

The third annual Baker Botts Board of Directors Forum took place on Thursday, January 16th at The Post Oak Hotel in Houston, Texas. The half day event, in a series of panel discussions and “fireside chats” led by board members, corporate professionals, advisors, and our attorneys, addressed hot topics and critical issues affecting Boards and Corporate Directors in 2020.
