Effective corporate governance practices are enabling and empowering for directors. They shouldn’t be in the way. Effective governance practices provide the resources and create the environment necessary for directors to exercise their business judgement.
We provide legal and governance counsel to boards of directors, their committees and to individual directors. Our approach emphasizes effectiveness over process. We ensure that directors are able to anticipate the views and reactions of the corporation’s stakeholders. We keep a careful eye on issues that may raise liability or reputational issues for directors and work with the directors, management, regulators and others to manage these risks.
