Legal community expects Sarbanes-Oxley, executive pay reviews in coming year

The federal government may ease some of its regulations on corporate boardrooms in 2007, turning its focus instead to hedge funds, according to legal analysts.

At the start of the decade, in the wake of several high-profile accounting scandals, including Enron and WorldCom, legislators crafted a series of oversight guidelines, most notably the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

Sarbanes-Oxley established strict accounting controls for all public companies and accounting firms. Some insist the costly procedures have deterred private companies from going public, while causing increased grumblings from those subjected to its measures.
