The Advocate for Institutional Investors

In an effort to assist institutional investors in the discharge of their fiduciary duties, the firm publishes The Advocate for Institutional Investors, which contains reporting and analysis of the latest securities and corporate law issues.

The Advocate often features articles by the management and general counsel of some of the largest public pension funds in the country, as well as some of the nation’s premier securities litigators.  Our “Eye on the Issues” section outlines legislative and regulatory updates of interest and reporting on recent events, court decisions and legislation directly affecting institutional investors.  If you would like to receive the Advocate by regular mail or email, please contact us at blbg@blbglaw.com or at 800-380-8496.
