Public Company Compliance & Governance

We handle annual, quarterly and other periodic reports; proxy statements; Rule 144 transactions; Section 16 counseling and filings; insider trading policies and counseling; Section 13 filings; proxy contests; takeover defense counseling; executive employment and compensation matters; stock options and other incentive compensation; director fiduciary duty issues; disclosure, projections and other antifraud issues; and general corporate and securities law counseling of publicly traded companies and their management. With the advent of the Sarbanes Oxley Act and related initiatives for the SEC and the stock exchanges, we have seen a convergence of technical securities law disclosure requirements and broader corporate governance concepts such as board composition and independence, the role of the audit committee, ethics and other board policies, all of which we assist our client in navigating.
