Corporate Governance and Compliance

The need for a sound corporate governance policy has emerged as a key concern in the internal organisation of companies, especially if they are listed.

Advising managing directors, supervisory directors and shareholders of listed companies, we have extensive experience assisting with compliance across a broad spectrum of areas. These include drafting and reviewing corporate governance charters and statements, follow-up of intra-group transactions, internal regulations, one and two tier board structures, and preparations of general meetings of shareholders.

Our specialists also advise on compliance with corporate governance codes and other standards and practices. They are frequently consulted on potential disputes between various stakeholders of a company and on matters that trigger directors’ conflicts of interest.

Our international network of top-tier law firms further complements our interdisciplinary teams’ knowledge and expertise.
