Fredrikson welcomes attorney Liz Dunshee to the firm’s Public Companies & Capital Markets and Corporate Governance groups. For the past six years, Dunshee has been a go-to thought leader for securities lawyers and other advisors as part of the editorial team at legal publishing company CCRcorp, a tenure that included three years serving as managing editor and serving on the company’s executive leadership team. Prior to joining CCRcorp in 2017, Dunshee spent over 10 years in practice and was a shareholder at Fredrikson, where she co-chaired the Corporate Governance and Executive Compensation practice groups.
Dunshee brings her experience covering the latest developments in securities laws, disclosure practices, ESG, and executive pay trends to advising public and pre-public companies on a full range of securities law compliance and corporate governance matters. This experience provides her with a unique combination of legal understanding, trendspotting, and business sense. She is a frequent author and speaker on securities and corporate law topics, and she will continue as senior editor on a part-time basis for CCRcorp, which nearly 90 percent of the Fortune 100 and AmLaw 100, as well as countless smaller and mid-sized companies and firms, rely on for essential guidance.
“I am thrilled to return to Fredrikson,” said Dunshee. “I’ve missed solving problems with my in-house counterparts, and coming up with ways to avoid those problems in the first place. I’ve been lucky to spend the past six years growing connections with leading voices in the securities, corporate law and ESG community, and developing much deeper insights into evolving trends and the perspectives of multiple stakeholders. I’m excited to help clients anticipate which trends will affect them, and work together on practical approaches to compliance, board effectiveness, and executive pay.”
Dunshee is a frequent author and speaker on securities and corporate law topics, with articles and quotes appearing in publications such as CFO Brew, Business Law Today, The Corporate Board and the Corporate Governance Advisor. Dunshee also blogs regularly on TheCorporateCounsel.net and CompensationStandards.com. She is co-editor of the Proxy Season Disclosure, In-House Essentials, Corporate Governance and Executive Compensation Disclosure treatises. And she co-hosts the Women Governance Trailblazers podcast, which is listed as one of Feedspot's Top 15 Corporate Governance Podcasts.
