Corporate Governance

Governance-img We advise executives, boards and special committees of a wide variety of companies and non-profit institutions concerning fiduciary responsibilities, internal conduct, dealing with stakeholders, and other governance issues. We help clients establish governance policies and compliance programs, and conduct confidential investigations related to compliance matters.

We provide representation to a variety of businesses, shareholders, officers and directors in the pursuit and defense of claims involving minority shareholder oppression, breach of fiduciary duty, violations of restrictive covenants, violations of corporate statutes and regulations, and other corporate governance matters.

We have continuously counseled corporate directors and shareholders concerning prospective conflicts of interest, and the proper handling of transactions between companies and their board members. We have also advised the governing boards of non-profit corporations and religious institutions concerning the requirements of state law, the permissible business activities in which they may engage, and the tax consequences of various options.
