Corporate governance is increasingly in the spotlight, with recent high profile cases emphasising the need for all businesses to follow appropriate governance practices and documentation at all times.

Our corporate governance specialists advise boards, management and individual directors on the full range of corporate governance issues. We are regularly called on to provide independent advice to directors involved in significant transactions when there is need for independent counsel.

We also routinely undertake investigations and provide second opinion reviews of advice to boards. Our experience covers:

  • advice on meetings
  • directors duties
  • personal, accessorial and derivative liability
  • directors and officers insurance
  • indemnities
  • access to documents
  • executive remuneration
  • related party transactions
  • disclosure issues
  • pre-emptive rights
  • share trading
  • executive appointments
  • removal of directors.
