Businesses need effective corporate governance to excel. A strong, controlled framework of practices and processes keeps companies balanced, productive and working in the best interests of everyone involved.
Attorneys in Taft’s Corporate Governance practice advise public, private and nonprofit clients on all aspects of corporate governance. This may include compliance with the rules of the Securities Exchange Commission, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the Dodd-Frank Act. When necessary, we represent companies and individuals in internal investigations and litigation based on allegations of failures of corporate governance.
Our corporate governance advice for public companies includes compliance with the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, as well as the requirements of stock exchanges such as the NYSE and NASDAQ. We are prepared to advise on:
- Charters for Audit, Nominating and Governance, and Compensation Committees.
- Codes of Ethics.
- Corporate Governance Guidelines.
We also provide these services to our non-public and nonprofit clients since best practices of corporate governance for them have evolved based upon public company standards as a model.
