Corporate Governance

Shipman & Goodwin's business lawyers regularly counsel our for-profit and non-profit clients on a wide range of governance issues, including board structure and composition, committee structure and charters, executive compensation, codes of ethics, special investigations, conflicts of interest, mergers and acquisitions, and related party transactions.  Our expertise covers the full range of corporate governance and fiduciary duty issues and includes compliance issues concerning federal and state securities laws, privacy and data security laws, antitrust laws, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the Dodd-Frank Act, Connecticut, Delaware and other state corporate, non-stock, limited liability company and partnership laws, and New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq rules and regulations.  We also provide advice to boards, board committees and individual directors and managers on best governance practices, including reviewing and updating organizational documents, government investigations, internal investigations and enforcement proceedings.  For our tax-exempt clients, we provide advice on the management policies and practices that have been identified by the IRS as critical to good governance, including policies on conflicts of interest, executive compensation, joint ventures, endowments, whistleblowers, document retention and destruction, and preparation and review of the IRS Form 990.
