Cross-disciplinary approach to advising US public companies and US-listed foreign private issuers on complex, high-stakes public company matters
Highly respected SEC practice focusing on disclosure, restatements and internal control issues, Sarbanes-Oxley implementation, and corporate compliance
We advise many of the world’s largest corporations and their constituencies – executive officers, boards, audit committees, other independent committees and investors. Our clients also include significant not-for-profit foundations and institutions.
We offer our clients clear, practical advice regarding the full spectrum of SEC disclosure and compliance matters. We provide “early warning” of new developments and help our clients prepare for a change in a considered way tailored to their business.
We are widely recognized as the preeminent corporate governance counsel, helping our clients combine best practices and practical judgment to withstand today’s heightened scrutiny and litigation risks. Our relationships with the institutional investment community, corporate governance ratings agencies, and advocacy groups provide our clients with a respected and credible partner in settling disputes and effecting governance changes.
Our group is positioned to respond rapidly and effectively to client needs, including crisis situations. We quickly assemble a team with the expertise the situation calls for, often working closely with our securities litigation, merger and acquisition, and restructuring colleagues.
Our group includes recognized leading authorities on corporate governance, including Ira M. Millstein and E. Norman Veasey, former Chief Justice of the Delaware Supreme Court, and well-respected alumni of the Securities and Exchange Commission, including former Commissioner Harvey Goldschmid and former Corporation Finance Chief Counsel Cathy Dixon.
