Our corporate lawyers assist our clients in a full array of corporate governance matters, from organizing corporations, partnerships, and limited liability companies, to assisting clients with simple and sophisticated ownership, control, and anti-takeover mechanisms, including shareholder agreements and complex equity structures. We are regularly asked to advise directors and shareholders of private and public companies about their corporate rights and duties, both in general and in the context of internal corporate disputes and external challenges. Our lawyers also serve as outside general counsel to numerous corporations, and assist many other in-house legal staffs in covering corporate governance matters.
We actively assist our clients in corporate compliance programs, including compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and work to create board committee charters and other governance procedures that help our clients meet the best practices in the corporate community. Our experience in the area of corporate governance helps us develop innovative solutions to problems relating to corporate structure and ownership, such as shareholder disputes, inefficient tax results and contract defaults relating to a change of control.
