Governance of public companies occurs at the complex intersection of law, business and public policy. Emerging trends around stakeholder capitalism, sustainability and ESG considerations command increasing boardroom attention and investor engagement. These trends also are driving new regulations, expanded shareholder activism, and the accelerating impact of social media to add new challenges to the traditional concerns presented by fiduciary duties and proxy regulation. Lawyers in our global corporate governance practice are keenly attuned to these matters and routinely advise boards of directors, board committees, C-suites and investor groups on:

  • Going Private Transactions
