Corporate governance


Managing corporate activities is crucial for today's business leaders - managing shareholders, stakeholders, pensions fund management, regulating risk and ensuring compliance are essential to the running of your business. Good governance and best practice in advising you on systems and processes will help your Board to ensure the business is well managed for better performance and meets relevant regulation.

Our lawyers work with listed companies in the UK and across all jurisdictions to ensure that appropriate structures are in place. We can sit as part of your team advising board members and senior executives on strategic decision-making, resolve issues and help you understand changing regulatory and legal requirements. We advise board members to understand obligations, chairman's responsibility leading the board and non-executive director duties and general codes of conduct.

Our team are experienced in drafting policies and procedures, shareholder agreements and communications, conducting due diligence (if you are looking to diversify) and support all corporate activity such as diversification, mergers & acquisitions, investment and funding.

We can help devise your crisis management plans, and our wider team provide advice and support on fraud prevention, whistleblowing and cybersecurity. We also regularly conduct general audits to ensure your business runs with integrity and transparency.
