We serve as a trusted advisor to companies — as well as corporate boards, board committees, individual board members, entrepreneurs, and corporate officers.
Our experience in business strategy buttresses our legal counseling to boards of directors and executives. Sometimes we are brought in to deal with a specific emergency or particularly thorny issues of corporate law and corporate governance. Other times we are engaged to review a corporation’s legal strategy, and still on other occasions we are engaged as thought partners on fundamental legal and business questions.
Issues that we commonly advise on include:
Fiduciary duties of board members
Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) reporting and disclosure requirements
Board policies regarding committees, diversity, composition, succession, and more
Balancing strategy and compliance imperatives
Board’s responsibilities in shareholder derivative litigation
Conflicts of interest
Disagreements among board members
