Keith E. Gottfried, partner in Blank Rome's shareholder activism group, will be speaking on a panel at DealFlow Media’s 2nd Annual Activist Investor Conference on "The Impact of the Dodd-Frank Bill on Corporate Governance" on Thursday, January 27, 2011, from 9:00 a.m. to 9:50 a.m. at the Westin Times Square in New York City.
