CANADIAN CORPORATE GOVERNANCE LAWYER
Providing legal advice relative to governance, compliance and disclosure requirements of companies operating in Canada.
Corporate governance continues to assume a heightened role in business management, such that our law firm is engaged by many companies, and their individual stakeholders, officers and directors, to advise on legal matters pertaining to corporate governance, compliance and disclosure. At Neufeld Legal PC, we strive to provide solid legal advice when guiding and assisting corporate leadership in instituting the governance of their company, while striving to reducing the business' legal exposure in these matters.
As corporate governance lawyer, our legal advice is solicited with respect to a variety of governance, compliance and disclosure matters, which include:
» structuring of boards of directors and corporate committees
» drafting and negotiating the legal documentation (i.e., contracts, codes, policies) pertaining to matters of governance, compliance and disclosure
» developing and implementing best practices for a company's governance
» reviewing and analyzing company activities and plans in relation to pertinent laws, regulations and contracts
» constituting and overseeing annual and special directors meetings and shareholders meetings
» advising individual officers and directors, or boards of directors or sub-committees, as to fiduciary responsibilities, conflicts of interest, takeover maneuvers, etc.
» managing corporate compliance and related risks (i.e., corporate law, securities law, regulations, contracts, compensation, fiduciary duties, conflicts of interest)
Instituting and managing solid corporate governance practices is particularly important in an era where minor oversights and inadequate business practices are all too often the basis for internal corporate challenges, and even lawsuits, with respect to the legitimacy of select corporate actions. As such, it has become incumbent upon the leadership to manage corporate governance effectively and draw upon the legal guidance of an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer.
Our law firm is committed to providing legal guidance with respect to implementing and managing corporate governance matters.
