Corporate Governance & Compliance Investigations

Our corporate governance and compliance investigations practice provides our clients with the level of service and experience that is ordinarily available only through large firms. Our lawyers have for decades advised private and public companies, boards of directors, individual directors and shareholders on matters involving corporate governance including the following:
  • Sarbanes-Oxley investigations;
  • Foreign Corrupt Practices Act compliance;
  • accounting practices;
  • self-reporting obligations;
  • the utilization of special litigation committees;
  • independent investigations;
  • the rights of minority shareholders; and
  • the indemnification of directors.
Our lawyers have comparable experience in representing those clients when litigation over corporate governance arises, including derivative actions by shareholders. Our experience includes, for example, litigation alleging violation of federal and state securities laws, breach of fiduciary duty, waste, violation of antitrust laws, business torts, and director and officer liability.

Our attorneys understand the pressures of shareholder litigation. We also understand that there is no formulaic solution to the web of complex issues that corporate governance claims produce. Our attorneys are committed to working with clients to craft the most effective and economical strategy for exercising corporate governance.
