    • The composition and procedures for boards of directors or boards of managers and board committees
    • The oversight functions of the board
    • The role of audit committees
    • The development of codes of conduct, governance guidelines and other policies and procedures
    • The creation of board committee charters
    • Director and officer responsibilities and fiduciary duties
    • Executive compensation
    • Officer certifications
    • Governance-related disclosure requirements
    • Best practices for boards, board committees and individual officers
    • Day-to-day internal governance issues
    • Compliance with ethical and legal requirements

We also advise clients regarding the duties of directors and officers in change of control situations, internal investigations, and executive succession matters. The Firm can also conduct legal “audits” to prevent or mitigation potential liabilities and to identify and correct legally-hazardous business practices.
