Lawyers within Mayer Brown’s Corporate Governance practice assist private and public companies, senior management, boards of directors and board committees on governance issues and the evolving responsibilities of directors and senior management. Our Corporate Governance practice is comprised of professionals from our corporate, litigation, and employee benefits and executive compensation practices, among others.

We assist clients in connection with registration, listing, interpretive, compliance and enforcement, and disciplinary matters involving the SEC and other governmental and self-regulatory bodies, and also regularly advise companies on the particularities of securities laws in the Americas, Asia, and Europe, as well as stock exchange regulations and general corporate law in those markets.

Lawyers in our group are experienced in all aspects of governance counseling, including the composition, processes and independence of boards and board committees. We regularly advise corporate management, boards of directors and board committees (including special committees) on such matters as fiduciary duties, governance requirements of the principal exchanges worldwide, and board oversight responsibilities.

Additionally, we provide legal counsel to members of audit and compensation committees to help them avoid legal complications—with potential personal consequences—in the post-Sarbanes-Oxley enforcement environment.

Drawing on the experience of our corporate, securities, governance, litigation and compensation lawyers, our group is able to provide clients with the information, analysis, counsel and assistance needed to respond to the unprecedented challenges faced by companies as new laws and regulations change the way corporations work.
