Corporate Governance
Overview
Our attorneys understand that corporate governance systems in every single country are to a major degree an outcome of a local and economic background. There are many issues that affect corporate governance including, inter alia, market for shares, the product market, extent of independence of corporate directors even in a two-tier board, auditors' independence, proper managerial accountability, full transparency of executive remuneration, and organization rules and policies. Our attorneys understand that investors will find incentives in jurisdictions where investment structures are much more beneficial to shareholders. As trade barriers decrease markets increase, information flows get better, and restrictions on investment fade away. Our attorneys are aware that the Board of Directors is the key corporate monitor, the reliable watchdog for managerial indulgence and the safeguard in times of corporate hardship. Our attorneys are also aware that non-executive directors can trim down cost by the management team in a diligent and impartial manner. Independent directors holders of a financially significant equity stake in the enterprise are apt to acquire neutrality and objectivity conducive to undertake the appropriate management action.

Our clients need and we are prepared to assist in structuring internal governance procedure, external legal and regulatory mechanism to ensure that the company’s assets are being operated in the interests of all shareholders and financial stakeholders.
