Corporate Governance Audit: We advise clients on policy issues and how those policies impact the relationships among stakeholders, management, boards of directors, employees, and the community at large   Print This Page

Corporate Governance


In an era marked by heightened monitoring of corporate activity and financial reporting practices, the need for companies to understand and integrate regulations resulting from the Sarbanes-Oxley Act is critical. While initially focused on the public sector, the trickledown implications for closely held, privately owned and not-for-profit entities are significant.

Our Corporate Governance practice group advises our clients not only on the basic intent and components of the law, but on the nuances of related issues. These include the applicable regulatory framework, the investment environment and accounting issues that must be considered.

In helping clients meet their accountability and fiduciary responsibilities, we provide sound counsel relating to corporate governance issues, including; compliance, corporate governance audit and review, reporting, investigation, fraud detection and administrative proceedings. We assist with developing the composition and procedures of boards of directors and committees; identifying and implementing “best practices”; the development of board committee charters and codes of conduct; and executive compensation. We also work closely with auditing firms with respect to all aspects of corporate governance issues and compliance regulations. Further, our corporate governance practice draws upon the multiple interdisciplinary strengths within the areas of specialization of our firm, including corporate and securities, litigation, white-collar criminal defense and employment law.
