We have extensive experience assisting boards of public, private and not-for-profit entities negotiate an increasingly complicated landscape involving greater-than-ever scrutiny by shareholders and regulatory bodies of their practices, processes and decisions. Our lawyers advise boards across the entire spectrum of issues that they face, including in respect of their duties and potential liabilities, their structure, governance best practices, shareholder proposals, shareholder communications and engagement, crisis management, regulatory investigations, risk management, indemnities and directors’ and officers’ insurance, executive compensation, succession planning, contested shareholders’ and members’ meetings and continuous disclosure requirements.

Our lawyers regularly advise special and independent committees with regard to a variety of issues, including related party transactions. Most importantly, we know that there is no one size fits all solution and we tailor our advice to suit each client and the particular issues that it faces.
