Advice to Directors and Officers

Both public and private boards of directors as well as their executives often need independent advice as to their legal rights and obligations. Since the early 2000’s, the news has been plagued with failures of high profile U.S. public companies and the resulting demand to hold directors and officers accountable. The nuances of fulfilling your fiduciary responsibility for overseeing the integrity of financial statements, the reasonableness of executive compensation, the independence and competence of directors, and the legal and ethical conduct of business can be tedious and complex. With over 20 years of experience advising directors and executives, including nearly 16 years in the board room of a fortune 500 company, we are able help our clients understand their responsibilities, make informed decisions, and fulfill their statutory and fiduciary duties.
