Corporate Governance and Compliance
The roles of boards of directors, board committees, individual directors and executive officers have always been challenging, but the increased regulation in the post Dodd-Frank world has expanded the responsibilities of directors and executive officers of both public and private companies. In our role as counsel, we assist clients in a wide range of corporate governance and compliance matters.
In addition to advising boards of directors in the conduct of their duties, we assist in conducting special corporate investigations, legal audits and have developed and implemented specific compliance and conflict of interest policies and procedures.
Additional examples include:
- Advising on directors and officers claims, insurance and indemnification
- Advising audit committees, compensation committees and nominating committees in fulfilling the requirements under their charters and dealing with confidential matters delegated by the board of directors
- Advising on special fiduciary duties of controlling shareholders
