Good corporate governance is not just a legal or regulatory necessity - it is the foundation for growing and protecting a sustainable long-term business.

Companies both public and private face a number of challenges operating in today’s increasingly regulated and complex environment, with boards being put under the microscope as to their composition, competence, effectiveness and oversight role. Strategies for managing risk, complying with legal requirements, communicating with shareholders and preparing for uncertainties evolve constantly, and the need for proactive and effective relationships with all stakeholders - regulators, shareholders, investors, employees, suppliers and the wider community - has never been more important.

With a wealth of experience, our leading Corporate Governance practice helps companies navigate through these challenges, working across borders to find creative solutions to identify and manage governance risk. Advising both private and public companies, our lawyers combine deep regulatory and industry knowledge with extensive experience working with companies worldwide to plan, prepare and implement tailored programs which manage every aspect of legal, reputational and operational risk at all stages of the company life cycle.
