Practice & Industry Groups

Corporate Governance

The Corporate Governance Practice Group focuses on exchanging best practices and sharing developments in our multiple jurisdictions regarding governance advice to public and private companies, not-for-profit entities, boards, committees of directors, individual directors, trustees and executive officers. Group members deal with matters involving fiduciary duties, compliance and governance policies, executive evaluation and succession planning, confidentiality regarding corporate opportunities, conflicts and dualities of interest and related party transactions, director education and crisis management.

Many members also bring a special focus on anti-corruption, sharing insights and experience in global anti-corruption defense and other complex multinational challenges. They come together to collaborate for member firm clients in providing related services such as conducting internal investigations, and developing and delivering customized multinational training and compliance programs adapted with local laws, customs and culture in mind.
