Governance

Corporate governance is increasingly becoming a source of concern for clients - particularly those with international businesses. 

A key issue is being aware of the requirements of several different jurisdictions and taking account of them when structuring and running the business. Failure to observe and implement these compliance obligations can result in personal liability for officers and boards of directors.

Our corporate advisory team helps clients navigate their way through the web of compliance issues affecting their businesses. These include rules on board constitution and operation, compliance with Stock Exchange or UK Listing Authority rules, money-laundering, financial services regulation and communication with investors.

Recent work

  • Acting as special counsel to the independent directors of a publicly traded limited partnership in connection with its consideration and approval of an acquisition proposal.
