Corporate Governance

strong, focused and on point

Boards of directors and executive officers must comply with ever-expanding rules and regulations in the course of managing public and privately held companies. These groups also face increasing risks of litigation challenging their decisions in mergers and acquisitions, executive compensation, and other sensitive corporate matters. Maslon's business attorneys understand that helping clients navigate complex regulatory requirements involves more than just satisfying a checklist. We serve as trusted advisors to our clients as we help them solve problems and manage critical risks.

In particular, Maslon attorneys are highly experienced at developing corporate policies and committee charters that follow best practices and comply with the rules of NASDAQ and the New York Stock Exchange. We help companies evaluate the independence of directors and committee members and implement internal compliance procedures that satisfy the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and related rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission. We counsel on implementing ethics policies and enhancing corporate social responsibility. We also assist our clients in sensitive internal investigations, bringing in the expertise of our litigation colleagues as needed to advise on privilege issues as well as director and officer liability insurance coverage.

Beyond our technical skill, our clients remark that they appreciate our practical advice, which stems from a deep understanding of their company's business and the relationships among the various players. The executives, board members, and in-house counsel who work with Maslon attorneys trust us in the most sensitive situations to lay out alternatives and make thoughtful recommendations—informed by an understanding of the impact on the company's business, relationships, and reputation.
