Corporate Governance

Good corporate governance is critical to the success of all companies, as it can have profound effects on employees, management, directors, and corporate stakeholders.

Companies require sound corporate governance advice that balances practical business considerations in relation to regulatory, corporate, and public policy requirements.

Maxis Law’s team of skilled lawyers utilizes the latest regulatory and policy-related corporate governance decisions, as well as our partners’ wealth of experience, to deliver effective advice regarding corporate governance best practices. We provide our clients with practical and thoughtful advice to minimize their risk of non-compliance and meet their long-term business objectives.

Our lawyers have advised clients on various corporate governance matters, including preparation and review of corporate governance policies, code of business ethics, board procedures and policies, blackout policies, audit committee charters, insider trading policies, investor relations policies, conflicts of interest policies, director indemnity agreements, director and officer duties and liabilities, public disclosure compliance, risk management, and whistleblower policies and procedures.

We have advised special committees of independent directors that have been formed by public companies with respect to mergers and acquisitions, non-arm’s length transactions and other transformative business transactions. We have also advised boards of directors and shareholders of public and private companies with respect to board disputes, proxy fights, and contested shareholder meetings.
