Dynda Thomas, Partner at Squire Sanders and leader of its conflict minerals team, recently wrote an article in Bloomberg BNA, a source of legal, tax, regulatory, and business information for professionals, titled Conflict Minerals – You Have More To Worry About Than Just the SEC.

In her article, Dynda stresses that even if the legal challenge is successful and the conflict minerals rule is vacated, “companies will nevertheless have to consider what their customers will require even if there is no SEC reporting requirement.” Dynda then goes on to showcase Nintendo as an example of the potential impact activist groups may have on brand value and business results.
