Covington today released a client advisory providing best practices to assist in-house counsel of publicly-traded companies in responding to corporate political disclosure initiatives.  These initiatives aim to force companies to post to their websites more information regarding corporate political activities, such as details regarding corporate contributions to trade associations and 501(c)(4) social welfare organizations.  Despite recent setbacks, these corporate political disclosure efforts are not going away.  As these groups become increasingly sophisticated, 2015 looks to be their most active year to date.  The advisory highlights recent developments in the area, looks ahead to what companies can expect in the near future, and provides strategies and tips for those grappling with disclosure issues.
