Washington, D.C. Senior Counsel Frank Murray was quoted in an article published in Compliance Week on July 30, 2013 titled “SEC’s Conflict Minerals Rule Win Means the Clock is Ticking.” The article discusses a federal court’s decision to uphold the Securities and Exchange Commission's controversial conflict minerals rule, a Dodd-Frank Act requirement that companies must investigate and disclose the use of certain minerals mined in the war-torn Congo region of Africa. Mr. Murray was quoted saying, “Waiting any longer to tackle conflict minerals compliance is not a sound strategy.”
