How a Corporate Governance Attorney Can Help
Corporate management, a company’s board of directors, and corporate committees all have certain obligations to develop and/or comply with best practices for corporate governance.
Company officials have a fiduciary duty to shareholders to represent the interests of the business at all times. Fulfilling this obligation while preserving the liability protections of the corporate form means that officials must ensure that all corporate formalities are followed.
Corporate governance is about much more than the day-to-day obligation to keep the best interests of the business in the forefront. Best practices for governance include:
- Compliance with reporting obligations and disclosures
- Compliance with all securities laws including rulemaking and interpretations from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)
- Compliance with the Sabannes-Oxley
- Compliance with the listing requirements of securities exchanges
- Appropriate responses to shareholder proposals and proxy contests
- Developing workable charters for corporate boards of directors and independent committees
- Compliance with fiduciary duties and avoidance of conflicts of interests
- Due diligence for mergers & acquisitions
- Due diligence or underwritten offerings
- Compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
As transactional attorneys, our goal is to help ensure that your company develops practical policies that are always in compliance with evolving government standards and obligations. Our attorneys can provide advise on specific issues related to corporate governance or can provide your business with a comprehensive plan for complying with best practices and reducing the potential for future problems. While every business faces some risk, effective corporate governance can minimize potential legal issue including shareholder lawsuits and actions by government agencies, including the SEC.
