Addressing Corporate Governance Reforms

Be able to better guide clients of all sizes and sophistication - from a newly formed LLC to a publically traded corporation - and understand how important appropriate preparation can be to minimizing fallout when things inevitably go awry.

In operating daily, businesses of all sizes and industries routinely take shortcuts in corporate governance. By failing to implement appropriate corporate governance practices, they court unnecessary exposure for their businesses. This topic will cover the subjects, issues and questions that businesses, their officers and counsel (in-house and outside company counsel) should consider in setting up and evaluating its corporate governance practices. Corporate governance concerns and issues vary with each company's particular circumstances. For example, concerns affecting a Fortune 500 company are different from those of a startup company managed by its founders and both differ from the concerns of a family-dominated company. This information will explore what lawyers and nonlawyers alike can do to anticipate and prepare for when things go wrong. With that perspective, you will be in a better position to adopt corporate governance practice that align with your business objectives, and will be respected by enforcement agencies and the courts.
