Morrison & Foerster is seeking nominations for the 2013 Regulatory Innovation Award. Morrison & Foerster established the award in 2008 through the Burton Foundation to honor an academic or non-elected public official whose innovative ideas have made a significant contribution to the discourse on regulatory reform in the areas of corporate governance and executive compensation, securities, capital markets, regulatory capital or the regulation of financial institutions.

An independent committee including academics and business leaders will consider and evaluate the nominees. The committee consults with representatives of The Burton Foundation as part of the selection process. Past award recipients include Cass Sunstein, Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the White House Office of Management and Budget and Eddy Wymeersch, former Chairman of the Committee of European Securities Regulators.
