Corporate Affairs and Governance
Business Transactions Division
Good corporate governance practices will protect a company and its owners from future claims, obligations and liabilities. We take our role as a member of your team seriously, understanding both the culture of your company and the industry in which you operate. We often act as outside general counsel, where we serve as a trusted advisor to our clients in attending board meetings, recording minutes and preparing board and member resolutions.
As an example, we recently assisted a client in preparing and organizing its governing documents so its various holding, subsidiary, and affiliated entities could be sold to a private equity group in a large recapitalization transaction. We often assist clients in rewriting by-laws and shareholder and operating agreements in order to reflect changes in ownership, capitalization and buy-sell terms and conditions.
