Corporate Governance

Who Needs Corporate Governance Counsel?
While the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and Dodd-Frank Act were enacted primarily with large public companies in mind, the corporate governance standards and philosophies it embodies are increasingly being adopted in private companies and nonprofit organizations as well.

This is especially important for private companies that are considering making a public debt offering, going public or being acquired by a public company, and for nonprofit organizations that are subjected to regulatory scrutiny.

Our attorneys provide corporate governance counsel to a wide range of clients, including startups and emerging companies, larger private companies and public companies.

How We Can Help 
We provide a full complement of other corporate governance services, including the following:
  • Designing corporate governance policies and procedures and evaluating their implementation
  • Developing standards for the composition and responsibilities of key independent board committees
  • Preparing disclosure controls and procedures, codes of conduct, insider trading policies and corporate compliance programs
  • Counseling on executive compensation issues and disclosure
